Flood Forum Seeking New Members

posted 13 Sep 2017, 04:51 by Communications TEAM

The Bridge of Allan Flood Forum having been carrying out a lot of good work over the last couple of years and they are looking for some new members to assist with their efforts. Please get in touch with Sem below if you'd like to assist in any way.

"Bridge of Allan Flood Forum was formed to look at alleviating flooding issues around Bridge of Allan.  Although some work has been carried out it is increasingly obvious that we need to recruit more members who can offer practical help and knowledge.  We already have a good rapport with the Scottish Flood Forum who are very supportive of what we are trying to do as well as having connections with Stirling Council and SEPA.  If you feel you can contribute to the Forum please get in touch with 
Sem Curley at acdc123@btinternet.com.  In the hope that we get a good result, a meeting will then be arranged at which the Scottish Flood Forum representative will attend to advise on the way forward."

Memorial Park Tree Removal Update

posted 27 Aug 2017, 13:27 by Communications TEAM

Contract for the tree works has been awarded to Ayrshire Tree Surgeons. Weather permitting they will start work on Monday September 4th, the work is estimated to take until Friday September 8th.

Stirling Council have taken the decision that disinfectant mats are not going to be worthwhile and are not going down. The contractor has stated he will have to close sections of the paths. 

All the trees removed will be replaced with different varieties later in the year.

Memorial Park Trees Update

posted 3 Aug 2017, 03:19 by Communications TEAM   [ updated 8 Aug 2017, 13:33 ]

The Council have provided us with an update to the existing trees in Memorial Park. Stirling Council have now marked 24 conifers and 2 maples for removal. This is being put out to contractors, hopefully the works will be completed by the end of September. I am sure many people will be aghast at the number of trees which are due to come down so it is important to say that the trees will be replaced with other non-native species by the Park Steering Group, which includes Stirling Council, the CC and Friends of Bridge of Allan.


We will post updates on the proposed start date when we know more.

There will have to be path closures whilst the works are ongoing. Also as the issue is potentially Phytophthora (although tests don’t confirm this), Stirling Council will be looking to place disinfectant mats down at the entrances to the parks. All cut material will have to remain in the park. As much as possible will be chipped in to the beds.
