2. Previous minutes from 03/05/22 – proposed by JB, seconded by MMcG


3. City Centre South Update


At a previous session the City Centre South project had discussed the proposed changes


within the Torbrex area.


 SP communicated with the project and there is still a plan to show the plans within


each community allowing further comments where appropriate


4. Police Reports


 Police report shows crime not at a worrying level and no major crime within the area


5. Planning Reports


a. Ice Rink – we are still awaiting an update on this, it had been hoped a decision would


be taken by end April, we believe this land may no longer be being considered by the


council for education purposes


b. Beechwood Pavilion – Stirling Petanque Club had expressed an interest to the CC in


this building with a view to running a café to cover costs and using the building for

due to the potential impact it could have on local parking.


6. Beechwood Park


 Nothing to report within the park at this time


7. Litter

Bly to facilitate the admin grant


10. Grit Bins


 Stirling Council Roads dept are looking for input on where Grit Bins should (and


should not) be located. Will share on fb and ask for community comment.


11. Recycling consultation


 We believe that with the new administration in place at Stirling Council the changes


to Recycling will be revisited – the CC would be keen to collate comments from the


community to ensure any changes are appropriate to what the community need


12. New Community Councillors


 We had some interest from the community to become a community councillor –


applications have been sent to Stephen Bly for checking with a view to co-opting


new members are the next meeting.


13. AOB
