Review of Community Councils – have your say

Stirling Council is reviewing the way community councils operate. Please get involved and provide input. It is an important opportunity for the community to renew and revise how community councils work. If Strathblane community council is to continue after the next elections in Sept 2018, several new members will need to stand to replace retiring members. This consultation is a key opportunity to think about the whole scheme of community councils, and influence the scheme in which the newly elected CC members will work.

The areas which are being considered as part of the first consultation phase would cover:-

  • Community Council boundaries;
  • representation, including seeking ways to involve a wider age demographic;
  • improving communication between Community Councils and other community groups and organisations;
  • strengthening the Code of Conduct;
  • how any complaints about Community Councils are best addressed; and
  • resources and support to Community Councils.

Stirling Council have issued a survey as the first part of this review, and will end on the 29th November 2017. Views will be fed into a report to identify themes and ideas for further investigation and exploration in the second phase of the review.

Survey

If you need this survey as a paper copy or in any other format, please contact us on 01786 233076 or email

You can also write to them at-
Community Councils Review,
Democratic Services, Stirling Council, Room 53, Old Viewforth, Stirling, FK8 2ET

or email in your comments.

Stirling Broadband Delivery Group – Update 23 October 2017

We have received this update from Douglas Baillie, Stirling Council’s Broadband Project Manager

Broadband Delivery Group.

The next meeting of the Broadband Delivery Group will be held on 29th November 2017 from 19:00 – 21:00 at Council Chambers, Old Viewforth, Stirling FK8 2ET. At the last meeting Councillor Jeremy McDonald was elected as the chair of the committee. The meeting is open to all members of the public and will be attended by some Councillors. I hope that many of you can attend to express your views and hopefully seek help to get better connectivity.

Digital Scotland.

Following a meeting with Digital Scotland, BT, elected members and local MSP, we have agreed that the Council can look at ways of contributing to the “Gainshare” programme. Details from Digital Scotland around the mapping and costing are fluid and I shall hope to give an update at the BDG.

At the next BDG I hope to have more information relating to a new voucher scheme being proposed to support and expedite the R100 programme. The next Digital Scotland meeting is on 26th October and I hope to understand the scope of this initiative. I shall keep you all informed.

Mast proposal for Ben Gullipen.

The feasibility study for the potential mast structure on Ben Gullipen has been completed. Whilst a mast in this location would be beneficial to approx. 1600 potential premises the most challenging issue was the costs associated with backhaul connection. The Council will review the recommendations from the report and in turn liaise with Digital Scotland on the Gainshare project to assess if a mast is the most cost effective solution to rural communities within range. This may come a huge disappointment to many of you as the mast proposal was a possible route to faster speeds and in some cases actual connectivity. I am still hopeful that some sort of solution can come of this and will keep you informed of developments either way.

Miscellaneous

  Fibre Coverage Fibre Coverage >24Mbps
Fibre Coverage: end of Q4 2016-17 ** 89.7% 87.1%
Indicative fibre coverage: End Q3 2017/18 *** 93.4% 89.5%

 

If you wish me to visit your Community, to give an overview of what’s happening regards connectivity in your area or want advice, please contact me. If you require details or local contacts please e mail me as I can advise you of Suppliers in your area, which may be able to help with connectivity.

 

Community Broadband Scotland.

 

Whilst the role and support of CBS is under review please be aware that the Council still wish to support community initiatives. Current CBS projects have been given until the 7th November 2017 to confirm if they wish to proceed with CBS or be included in R100. Please contact me if you wish to discuss any help I can give.
