After making the declaration, Stirling Council Returning Officer Carol Beattie congratulated Mr Heald and thanked those involved in the delivery of the by-election.
Ms Beattie said: “I would like to thank everyone in Dunblane and Bridge of Allan who took part in the election of a new Councillor. The decisions taken by local government impact on everyone’s lives so it’s vital that people engage in the democratic process.
“Delivering a by-election successfully requires weeks of careful planning and preparation, and it’s also important to acknowledge the hard work and professionalism of all the Council staff involved as well as partners.
“Congratulations to Thomas Heald on his success and I look forward to working with him over the coming years.”
