Bus Service Provision – The Inches/Kinnaird Village

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 transportplanning@falkirk.gov.uk

Responses should be received by 15 April 2016.

 

 

Spreading Near Inches/Kinnaird Village

Following concerns raised with us of the ongoing strong smell around the Inches/Kinnaird Village, we contacted the Environmental Health section of Falkirk Council this morning for an update. They advised they had visited the area this morning. They advised that the spreading on the fields near the Inches/Kinnaird stopped on Thursday. There is still a section of the fields which has been spread but is waiting to be ploughed. They have contacted the farmer for an update on the spreading/ploughing schedule. Some of the spreading materials were delivered to the area in advance of the spreading which is likely to have caused some smells over the last couple of weeks. Environmental health will keep us informed and if we receive any updates, we will post them here.

In the interim, please continue to report any issues and concerns to Falkirk Council on 01324 506070 or by e-mail on contact.centre@falkirk.gov.uk
