The Community Council has received a Proposal of Application from Gladman Scotland in relation to a forthcoming application for planning permission in principle for residential development, access, landscaping, open space and associated works, on land at Stirling Road, Larbert.
A Public Exhibition will be held by Gladman Scotland on Tuesday 13th June at Larbert Bowling Club, Pretoria Road, Larbert, FK5 4NB from 3.00pm until 7.00pm. A series of exhibition boards will be displayed providing the background to the proposals and identifying the factors which will influence the proposals.

Many thanks to all those who voted for the new logo for the Tod Hill Windfarm Fund. The voting is now closed. All of the logos attracted a substantial number of votes but the clear winner was logo number three created by Lee Grogan & Aiden Beveridge – picture below. Well done to all who participated.
Edinburgh Airport is asking for your views on the potential impact of altering flight paths above Edinburgh that maximise operational benefits and minimise community impact. One of the proposed arrival routes would go over the Larbert, Stenhousemuir and Torwood area 76 days per year with planes at a height of 4000-7000ft.
The consultation is open until 12 September 2016. More information and details of how to comment on the consultation, can be found at letsgofurther.com
Falkirk Council’s Transport Planning Unit has received a number of requests to review the route of Service 59 between Letham and Falkirk. Some passengers have expressed concern about the journey time and reliability of the current route, which operates via The Inches/Kinnaird and Forth Valley Royal Hospital. All subsidised bus services are due to be retendered in 2016 and as part of this process, Falkirk Council will be considering a number of options for the future of Service 59.
Falkirk Council is now consulting with local residents to help them to provide the most appropriate service for residents of The Inches and Kinnaird Village if Service 59 is diverted to operate via a more direct route.
In order to assist with this consultation process a questionnaire has been designed to gather comments from local residents. The questionnaire can be accessed by clicking here: The Inches Questionnaire.
Please return this form to Falkirk Council, Development Services, Abbotsford House, Davids Loan, Falkirk, FK2 7YZ or email a scanned copy to email@example.com
Responses should be received by 15 April 2016.
