The Local Development Plan and the City Region Deal set out ambitious plans for Stirling to grow in a way that gives us the best possible place for people to live and enjoy whilst enabling walking, cycling and placemaking in the city centre south, as well as supporting the economic life of city centre and improving the city centre environment for residents, visitors and businesses.
In 2010 we commissioned a report to consider how the City Centre could grow whilst also making it a better place for residents and visitors.
The report looked at a number of options and recommended a package of public realm improvements, including walking and cycling, along with completing the inner ring road with new link road across the Viewforth site.
City Centre South is about more than a link road, it is about the wider area and how, together, we can create a city centre and city neighbourhoods that work for our residents, businesses and visitors. This is the start of a longer programme of working together with all our City Centre South communities and we hope you will join us.
We have started to develop this wider programme and as part of this, a planning application for the link road has been submitted. You can make comments on the planning application through the Planning Portal.
