Stirling Council is seeking the views of Dunblane residents on the proposed relocation of local office services from the Dunblane Burgh Chambers to Dunblane Library. The move will include all the services currently available at the Burgh Chambers. See the Council's Facebook page.

The draft plan of the Library can be downloaded here. It will also be on display at both Dunblane Burgh Chambers and Dunblane Library until Friday, 3 April 2015.

To have your opinion on the suggested move heard, please complete the online survey or fill in a paper copy, available at Dunblane Library and the Burgh Chambers.
