Con­cerns come to light

Stirling Times - - News -

ILLUMINATED signs con­tinue to cause prob­lems along the coast.

Real es­tate agency Real­mark Coastal has been forced to re­move prop­erty sale signs hooked up to elec­tri­cal leads via the home.

The Stir­ling Times is aware of sev­eral signs on verges along West Coast Drive, in­clud­ing in Trigg and North Beach, de­signed to be lit up.

Long elec­tri­cal cords ran from the signs, across the verge and into the homes.

City of Stir­ling com­mu­nity safety man­ager Lau­rie Crouch launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter it was made aware of the sig­nage late last week.

“The City has made con­tact with the real es­tate agen­cies in­volved and the signs have now been re­moved,” he said.

“The is­sue of non­com­pli­ant por­ta­ble sig­nage is firmly on the City’s radar and will con­tinue to be mon­i­tored and ad­dressed by the City’s rangers and com­mu­nity safety team.

“The City has al­ready seen a no­tice­able drop in the num­ber of non-com­pli­ant signs and be­lieves this trend will con­tinue.”

Real­mark Coastal was con­tacted for com­ment.

Stir­ling coun­cil­lors will con­sider adopt­ing a thor­ough­fares and pub­lic places lo­cal law, which seeks to tighten rules re­gard­ing por­ta­ble ‘home open’ signs, at tonight’s coun­cil meet­ing.
