BEAR Consultation Letter – M9 Junction 10 SB

 

BEAR Scotland, acting on behalf of Transport Scotland, is planning to carry out essential resurfacing works on a section of the M9 southbound at Junction 10 between the off-slip and on-slip. Please find the enclosed location plan for clarity.

 

The works have been provisionally programmed to commence on Thursday 24th March 2022 for a duration of 1 night between the hours of 19:30 and 06:00.

 

To ensure the safety of the workforce and members of the travelling public it is necessary to close the M9 Southbound between Junction 11 (Keir Roundabout) and Junction 9 during the works.

 

During this period of closure, a signed diversion route will be in place travelling southbound via Kier Roundabout (Junction 11), A9, A907, A91 and the A9 before re-joining M9 southbound at Junction 9. A location plan showing this diversion route is attached. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times and all traffic management will be removed out with working hours.

 

If you require any further information or would like to comment on any of the proposed works please do not hesitate to contact Barrie Harrison by email at SEConsultationroads@bearscotland.co.uk.

Light up Muckhart!

The lights were switched-on on December 5th by Mrs Sutherland.  For once they came on without multiple attempts!  Members of the community were encouraged to come out and enjoy the switch on with mulled wine, community carols and sweet Christmas treats.  The response was fantastic with the car park full of local residents of all ages enjoying the event. The LUM team received multiple comments during December from residents as to how good the lights looked, on the tree and the hall.  Parents of children walking or cycling to school really enjoyed the magical feel around the hall.  Walking groups, local clubs and societies that were using the hall also appreciated them and recognised the significant upgrade from our previous years “home-spun” lights.

Given that many indoor Christmas activities involving large numbers had been restrained due to Covid restrictions it was lovely to have a community gathering in the car park with some winter sparkle in our village in December.

The switch on event and afternoon click and collect raised £1,200 which we split between Homestart Clackmannanshire and the Gate Foodbank in Alloa.

MUCKHART NATURE TRAIL UPDATE        February 2022

The Nature Trail volunteer team has now completed the plan for the first stage of the improvement programme for the Nature Trail along the footpath between School Road and Muckhart School. At this stage we have focussed on choosing the tree and shrub species most suitable for enhancing the path and on proposing their position along the path. In the next week or two we will be purchasing the trees and hoping to complete the planting before spring arrives. A guiding principle has been that only Scottish Native species will be considered.

Not only is this a status update note, it is also an invitation to everyone to review our choice and positioning of these new trees and to respond with any suggestions for improvement (contact details below). The list of trees is presented in the following table together with the respective Marker Numbers. Height ranges for each species are shown; it can be noted we chose to site only low growing shrubs/trees at the northern School Road end of the path. Short wooden pegs, marked with the appropriate number, have been hammered into the ground on both sides of the path at the approximate, intended location of the individual trees. The number on each peg refers to the Marker Number in the table below.

Marker No. Latin Name Common Name Mature Height Range (m)
1 Vibernum opulus Guelder rose 2-5
2 Prunus spinosa Blackthorn 2-5
3 Euonymus europaeus Spindle 2-5
4 Ilex aquifolium Holly 2-5
5 Sambucus nigra Elder 2-5
6 Corylus avellana Hazel 5-15
7 Populusnigra subsp betulifolia Black poplar 20-30
8 Malus sylvestris Crab apple 5-10
9 Salix caprea Goat willow 5-10
10 Alnus glutinosa Alder 10-15
11 Prunus avium Gean 15-20
12 Carpinus betulis Hornbeam 15-20
13 Betula pubescens Hairy birch 5-15
14 Ulmus glabra Wych elm 20-30
15 Populus tremula Aspen 20-30
16 Prunus padus Bird-cherry 5-15
17 Taxus baccata Yew 10-15
18 Acer campestre Field maple 5-10
19 Tilia cordata Small leaved lime 20-30
20 Betula pendula Silver birch 15-20

The opportunity has also been taken to similarly indicate the positioning of three other proposed enhancement features along the path:-

Marker No. Area Description Approx Area Required (m)
21 Group discussion area  – circle of log stools within hedge of mixed native shrubs 5  minimum diameter
22 Picnic Area:- table + benches within hedge of mixed native shrubs 5×5 min
23 Dead Hedge 0.75×10

Neighbourhood Watch – Litter and Flytipping Consultation

National Litter and Flytipping Strategy Consultation

Litter and Flytipping continue to be a growing issue in all our communities

This Scottish Government consultation, which was drafted in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland, Keep Scotland Beautiful and Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), is seeking views on the aims, objectives and actions that will sit under, the new National Litter and Flytipping Strategy for Scotland.

These proposed actions sit within three strategic themes that were agreed by stakeholders:
Behaviour change
Services and infrastructure
Enforcement

Evaluating the progress and effectiveness of the strategy is also acknowledged to be of vital importance. Data and research has been recognised as a cross-cutting theme and comprises an integral and essential part of the other three themes listed above.

Why your views matter
The responses to this consultation will help shape and deliver the final strategy which will be published in 2022. Engagement and consultation with a wide range of stakeholders is a crucial aspect of the new strategy development.

To take part in the consultation see link below

The consultation closes on 31st March 2022
