Here are some of the key topics under discussion this month.  Our full list of intiatives is on our home page

 

Transport Transport

Dunblane Community Council (DCC) has asked Stirling Council to consider installing a pedestrian crossing on the dual carriageway across from the Dunblane Centre to improve road safety for people accessing the centre.

DCC has asked Stirling Council to consider improving the slip roads to the A9 at the Queen Victoria school junction.  These are very short and therefore dangerous for road users.

 

 £ Town Centre & Economy

 DCC has secured the sponsorship of a Stirling Councillor to verify that Dunblane will be elligible for a portion of the windfall funding should the Windburn wind farm development behind Dumyat be allowed to proceed.
