Community Council Matters
The Community Council is always interested in people’s views about local issues, including planning applications. Perth and Kinross Council are required to consult the Community Council on planning matters and applications. Whenever possible, the Community Council‚ Äôs meetings provide a venue for people to express their support or objections to planning applications or planning matters. You can also email the Community Council with your views at firstname.lastname@example.org or use Twitter to send a direct message to @DandBCC.
In recent months, we have considered residents views about planning applications for fast-food restaurants, a new block of flats as well as the impact of the new blue plaques. We are interested in resident’s views on planning matters such as how to protect the conservation status protections of our villages or which types of developments should be priorities. If we do not know your view, we cannot represent your view.
We also undertake projects in co-operation with residents engaged in campaigns or projects that will preserve what is good in our communities and improve what is less so. In the past year we have supported the local campaign to preserve our bus services. First it was the buses to Edinburgh, now it will be the quality of routes to Perth. We are also working with several active local residents who are working with Scotrail (and others) to keep or improve our rail services when the new timetables come in 2019. And, over many years, we have worked with or created several groups trying to improve the A9 or respond to planned changes to the A9, chiefly dualling. The Community Council is open to everyone, in groups or out.
Sometimes the best way to find out what people think is to have a public meeting. The next Community Council public meeting will be about the A9 on Monday, January 8th, at 7:30pm at the Birnam Institute. There are significant changes happening in the plan for choosing a route for the A9 dualling. Come to the public meeting and have your say.
Future Meeting Dates: December 11th; January 8th (A9 public meeting); Feb 12th.
