Arnprior east bound bus shelter and Community storage

The community had been informaed by the owners of the outbuilding that the propoerty was to be placed on the market for sale.

Accordingly, the building could no longer be used by the community as a bus shelter nor, in the rear, as a store for the community.

It was agreed that contact should be made with the relevant Stirling Council officer to discuss the effect of this change on the protection and convenience of the users of the bus stop.

It was reported that a meeting with the owner had taken place and that correspondence was on-going. In response, the CC took the view that an alternative storage facility would be an amicable solution and encouraged such an outcome to be pursued sanctioning the application of suitable funding should that be necessary.

IB brought to the attention of the members the significant contribution that had been made to address the issue by local resident and former chair, Ed Carrick. The members recorded their warm thanks to Ed
