Throsk Community Council - Elected Members Report 14/03/23

Trimming of overgrowing hedge - there is a request in to get the hedge on the path from the car park down toward the river trimmed back. I await an answer.

Regarding the speed limit through the main part of the village, I have a meeting arranged with road services officers on the 21st March to discuss speed limits across the Eastern Villages and Bannockburn.

Throsk Community Enterprises - having carried out an extensive search to see what information was in the public domain regarding the running, management and adherence to OSCR requirements, finding very little I have requested from OSCR details of what exact information should be available to the community, where there should be a copy of the constitution for all to see.

So far all that's available is the minimum that is required on OSCRs page - which is very little and out of date. I've also enquired re. the lease.

Macleods Maturation Warehousing Development - an update on progress has been requested - I await a response.


Area Forum

There was an event held by the Community Development Team on Saturday (I was unable to attend) Representatives from Fallin, Cowie and Plean stated an intention to meet in early June following the CC elections to form an Eastern Villages Forum. The representatives aske the CDT to engage with

Throsk and invite Throsk to participate.

I'm giving you the 'Heads up' tonight and would suggest that this would be a great opportunity for Throsk. As Community Wealth Building initiatives roll out a forum across the villages is likely to attract greater attention and you do have the industrial estate right there.

A forum will take a bit of work from all concerned and the right support will have to be put in place.


Quarry Update

I have looked into the quarry with specific regard to it posing a potential hazard to health.

Officers informed me that although there is a repair and reinstatement clause Patersons have not technically declared that this in no longer a working site and therefore no demands can be put on them to return it to its original state!

Also, that the measures taken to secure the site have been inspected and complies with the 1954 Mining and Quarries Act.


Old Viewforth

16th Feb. Housing Budgets

Of the proposals for rent increase - 2.9% was passed as this was what was identified as acceptable by 60% of respondents in the Tenants Consultation exercise, however, in the same document slightly over 80% voted for increased housing and similar for increased spending on environmental improvements!

Housing Services gave assurances that current levels of services and capital investment will be sustained with the level of increase.


2nd March Council Budget

There is a substantial deficit that is to be covered by a number of decisions including cuts of and/or to services, and by use of a Voluntary Severance Scheme.

Council Tax was raised by 7%
