FED-UP residents in rural Stirlingshire say the council’s winter gritting policy is rubbing salt into their wounds.

Denis Noblett, who lives at the remote Hillhead Retreat on Cowie’s Carnock Road, has been camped inside his house for almost two weeks.

“Over the past week, many people have been parking cars on Main Street, Killearn due to the extent of snow coverage in the side streets.

Whilst this practice is understandable, the parking is now starting to have negative impact on the community. Bus services which pass through Killearn are now being diverted along Station Road. This creates great problems for public transport users in the Branziert Road area, many of whom are elderly.

Similarly, it is becoming increasingly difficult to simply drive along Main Street, Killearn given the amount of cars parked in this area.

Clearly shops such as the Co-op and Spar require deliveries, and their drivers have experienced great difficulty in making deliveries of essential items such as bread and milk.

Stirling Council are making great efforts to clear side streets of snow and ice. Streets such as Beech Drive have been ploughed on a number of occasions now. Where ever possible, can I appeal to residents of Killearn to please avoid parking in Main Street and Balfron Road.

Many cars on these roads have clearly not been moved for several days and could just as safely be parked in driveways or in the side streets.

Thank you for your assistance in this regard and your co-operation would be greatly appreciated.
