Local Place Plan
Do you live in the Killearn Community Council Area? (Check!)
If so, we need your views on what makes it a good place to live in, and what could be improved.
To let us know, please fill in the survey at OurPlace.scot: https://www.ourplace.scot/tool/start/killearn-adult-pop.
This is the first step in putting together a Local Place Plan to guide how we would like to see the area develop over the next 10 years – more information coming soon.
The Police report to February is available, which includes advice on where to report scams and on winter road safety.
Police advice on online gaming safety awareness is also available.
The Planning schedule for January-February is available.
Stirling Council's Community Development News (CDNews) Bulletin for February is available from the Community Development news bulletins page on their website.
We've been contacted by the network provider SP Energy Networks (who are definitely not the same thing as Scottish Power). Anyone living within southern central Scotland, north west Wales, Merseyside, Cheshire and north Shropshire are their customers.
They're looking to ensure vulnerable customers are added or updating their detail on the Priority Services Register. Once added this will ensure that during a power cut that they can tailor the support needed during this period and pro-actively keep customers up to date where possible. We have a leaflet on who is applicable to be on the register. The register applies to households and not the individual, so they can take details for anyone in the residence all under one name (the person filling out the form).
Secondly, we have a leaflet promoting their additional services, which all come free of charge. They've partnered with various organisations that will help make customers' homes as warm and as energy efficient as possible, to help reduce the rising costs of energy. They can also offer home fire safety checks, offer carers support and also look into income maximisation through benefit checks, this has in some cases led to backdated payments.
Update 129 (December) is available.
Councillor Gerry McGarvey is available to try and help with any concerns or issues Killearn residents may have regarding Stirling Council Services.
Gerry is happy to meet in-person and face-to-face, by zoom, or chat by telephone. To arrange a time to meet with one of your local Councillors:

Review of Proposed Path between Former Hospital Site and Killearn
The proposal for the path connecting the development at the former hospital site and Killearn is part of application 20/00098/FUL (viewable at Stirling Council's planning portal). KCC considers that there are problems with the proposed route and is looking into an alternative.
