Local issues

Lovers Walk

On this page, you will find local updates, Stirling Council Updates, and helpful information and support which we hope will be of some help during the Coronavirus Crisis.

We have been approached a number of times by members of our community regarding the issue of maintaining a safe social distance of 2 metres whilst travelling via Lovers Walk.  

Lovers Walk is considered a shared path, meaning that cyclists and pedestrians share the same space which can cause difficulty; particularly given current circumstances and Government guidance.   The Community Council has already placed signs asking people to keep to the left and walk in single file, however, this area is still having issues, particularly with cyclists and not having a clear line of sight to allow everyone to give way.

We approached Stirling Council to ask for some guidance regarding this situation.  We have been informed that there is a discussion regarding closing Lovers Walk temporarily to allow for pedestrians and cyclists to use this whole space safely.  Riverside Community Council has asked for further information on this proposal and as far away we are aware no decision has been made.

Please note this is independent of the discussions and subsequent vote regarding the £10k Lovers Walk was awarded through the Participatory Budget.  This is a measure that may be taken due to the Coronavirus Crisis.

Cambuskeneth Bridge is less than 2 metres across and as a result, social distancing is not possible.  After discussions with Cambuskeneth Community Council signs were put up asking people to keep to the left, cross in single file and to give way where possible.  Stirling Council informed us that they were working on a plan regarding bridges like Cambuskenneth Bridge throughout Stirling and will let us know of any further support they can give us.
