Tree Felling at Archway Woods – The Chair sent a statement to the Stirling Observer which repre- sented the views of the people who had approached the GCC requesting action.

Gartmore News editorial body chose not to publish the GCC report hence censoring a democrati- cally elected community body. A letter has been sent from GCC to Gartmore News to clarify their editorial approach

Katie Goldie and Janet Billett along with any other interested parties and members of the commu- nity will meet with Cameron Maxwell ( Forestry Scotland ) at 12 noon 15th December to discuss concerns and what lessons can be learned going forward

Community Council emails. GMcG has spoken to Michelle Flynn about resolving this whereby not all Gcc members are on direct mailing but they do receive details via CS

Parking at Cobleland : Marion McIntyre ( local resident ) raised concerns regarding the parking on the junction and along the road opposite the Cobleland campsite. When it was busy it obstructed the vision of vehicles exiting their homes. Also when vehicles were parked on either side of the road this could obstruct the buses and large wood lorries

GMcG will raise this with Cllr Martin Earl and Cllr Jeremy McDonald. Next meeting April 6th 2022 7.30 in Village Hall
