The Community Council would like to hear your views on the 20mph members bill in the Scottish Parliament, submitted by Mark Ruskell (Green Party). The full consultation document can be downloaded from the Scottish Parliament Website here.  

The bill proposes reducing the default speed limit on restricted roads from 30mph to 20mph, whilst giving local councils the power to retain specific streets as 30mph zones where suitable, e.g. as designated through routes. Whilst many communities have already benefited from being reclassified as 20mph zones, the approach in Scotland to date has been piecemeal, resulting in some local councils having no permanent 20mph zones in place at all.

Project Background

In Early 2014, Stirling Council obtained funding from the sustainable transport charity SUSTRANS to improve the street layout on Beech and Stirling Roads. Since then they have been working with local residents, your Community Council, Dunblane Development Trust and Discover Dunblane to make the area more pedestrian and cyclist friendly. There has also been a focus on the needs of those with mobility difficulties, and vehicular access for station users, businesses and local residents.

A public consultation on concept plans took place in November/December 2014. Many of the comments received reflected a desire to get an environment that works well for all and been used by the Project Steering Group to finalise the plans.

It is an important opportunity for everyone to shape this new plan. Read the Update  The LDP consultation for Dunblane  was held on 22 August 2015 in the Dunblane Centre.

Major Planning Issues

There are a number of major development projects in Dunblane at various stages of the planning process. Some are the subject of Planning Applications, which can be found on the Council website (see above). Others are the subject of a proposal of application notice (PAN) and pre-application consultation (PAC) – these are not recorded on the Council website.

Park of Keir PAC : Park of Keir PAC : A tennis and golf centre and residential development is proposed by housebuilders A L King , along with Judy Murray and Colin Montgomerie, on the 270-acre site at Park of Keir. The development would include a number of houses (it was 100, reduced to 19 in June 2015), 12 tennis courts, a 6-hole golf course, a café and a hotel.

Gladman's site at Barbush : This proposed development by Gladman had planning permission (12/00289/FUL). It included a supermarket, petrol filling station and office development of 3,021 sq m. Although Sainsbury has been linked to the site, there is no confirmation as to the identity of the supermarket chain or to a date for starting on site.

In November 2016, Gladman submitted a new planning application ref 16/00774/PPP for 80 homes across the whole site.  It now seems likely that there will be no supermarket and no petrol station at Barbush. Update This planing application was approved in April 2017 - read the Stirling Observer article
