STIRLING councillors from all political parties will be discussing future development proposals for Bridge of Allan and Causewayhead on Tuesday, December 13 at Wallace High School.
Residents are being given the opportunity to comment on the Draft Proposed Local Development Plan, at a Community Discussion Session which will be held from 7-9pm.
Prior to this, on Saturday, December 10 from 10am-4pm in Wallace High School, there is a drop-in session at which locals will be able to find out more about what the Draft Plan proposes for their community. Planning officers will be on hand to explain the development proposals and answer any queries.
The Local Development Plan will be a blueprint for the development of the Stirling Council area over the next 25 years and Bridge of Allan and Causewayhead have been identified as areas for potential development.
The council’s environment and sustainability spokesperson Councillor Jim Thomson said: “The council are keen to find out what local people think of proposed development, and to take account of their views in the preparation of the new Local Development Plan. This plan will shape our communities over the next two decades, and it is important that all in the local community are able to have their say on the development proposals.”
Comments on the Draft Local Development Plan should be made in writing, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information please visit www.stirling.gov.uk/localdevplan.
Comments received will be reported to the council in the early new year, and a proposed plan prepared and published. There will be further opportunity at that point to comment.
