Thanks were expressed to Andrew Donaldson for updating the map of the KCC boundary

CC1044 – ANY OTHER BUSINESS

 

Following a recent meeting for carer and server users, a member of the public updated
the meeting on a Clackmannanshire and Stirling Health & Social Care Partnership
Consultation for service users. In the future, it is intended that focus will be on providing
individual care for individual persons. Respite care, including nursing care, will be
provided in Bellfield Centre, Stirling and at Blanefield House, Blanefield. Strathendrick
Care Home, which has had no maintenance money spent on it in over the past six years,
has closed with all staff having found alternative employment.

 

As Killearn already has an active informal neighbourhood watch scheme in different
areas within the village, it was agreed, following discussions with the Police, that this
should be encouraged and is the best way to deal with the issues at this time.

 

A request was made for a dog waste bin to be put in the Ibert Road/Branziert Road area
of the village. This is a very popular area for dog walking and it has been noticed that a
number of plastic dog waste bags have been left at the roadside. It was agreed KCC
write to SC with this request. (Action FR)

The next KCC meeting is scheduled for 21 April 2021. This will be held again via Zoom
and details will be confirmed nearer the time.
