Clackmannanshire Council ‘Report it’

If you have anything that you wish to be actioned by Clackmannanshire Council, then you should use the ‘Report it’ online portal. This could include road and pavement faults, street lighting faults, missed waste collection, breach of planning permission, fly tipping or overgrown core footpaths that need maintenance. It is unlikely that any faults are repaired unless they are reported through this portal. http://www.clacks.gov.uk/council/reportit/

Local crime alert

You may already be aware of a break-in that occurred at a property, in Cairns Place, in Pool of Muckhart, sometime yesterday.
Whilst the back door to the property was damaged, thankfully, nothing appears to have been taken. The Police were informed and have attended the property. This shows that opportunistic crime can take place at any time, anywhere. So, please ensure that you lock all of your doors and windows, when away from your property, and keep an eye out for any suspicious looking vehicles, or individuals, that may be present in the area.
 Finally, please report anything, that you consider to be out of the ordinary, to the Police.
