Council planning convener, Chris Kane welcomed the cash boost to the council.

He said:“We’re delighted to be awarded £77,000 of Community Choice Funding from the Scottish Government.

“The programme known as `Your Community-Your Budget-Your Decision’ programme is about empowering our local communitie­s so that, together, we can address the needs of locals and provide the services that really meet the needs of the Stirling area.

“Residents and community groups will play an integral role in this project and we are very much looking forward to getting started.”
