August 2021 Police Scotland - Body Camera Consultations ​Police Scotland recently asked the public for their views on our Armed Police Officers using body worn video cameras to record certain incidents. Almost 9,000 people took part in a national survey and the majority thought the use of body worn video cameras would increase trust and confidence in the police and make them feel safer. The response was so positive, we are now considering giving these cameras to police officers and staff, in other roles across Scotland. This means that cameras would be worn on their uniform to record what they see and hear in certain situations so everyone involved has a clearer picture of exactly what happened. The consultation is an opportunity for the public to be part of an ongoing conversation to help shape the use of Body Worn Video cameras by police officers and staff when interacting with communities in Scotland. Your views will help inform protocols, code of practice and training to ensure that things are done in an appropriate and proportionate way, each and every time. ​​Please take some time to take part in the national survey by visiting the Body Worn Video pages at scotland.police.uk or using the link: here.

September 2021 A message from First Bus I’m writing to you to make you aware of some ongoing service disruption that is presently affecting our bus network. We’re experiencing an acute driver shortage coupled with the ongoing requirement of a proportion of our existing driver pool having to self-isolate with very little advance warning. However, I would like to take this opportunity to assure all of the communities that we serve that we’re doing absolutely everything possible to deliver as much as we can in the face of very challenging circumstances. Over the coming days, the attached notice will begin to appear at bus stops across the Stirling Council area. This notice is to make everyone aware that while we will continue with our efforts to deliver our scheduled timetables, there may well be some short notice disruption for the reasons outlined above. It may be helpful to know that our website (www.firstscotlandeast.com ), Twitter channel (@FirstScotland ) and customer service team will be advising customers of any changes to services as soon as they’re confirmed. Our control rooms are communicating direct with our social media and customer contact teams as soon as an issue becomes known. These measures will help to inform customers and communities of a potential issue as quickly as we can and I would therefore ask everyone to keep an eye on these channels or check with our customer service centre for any disruption when planning journeys. In the meantime, we’ve made some timetable changes that came into effect today (on service 38/X38) that will enable us to better spread our available pool of drivers across the Stirling and Forth Valley area with a view to improving service reliability. I hope that this information is helpful in the meantime, and I thank you in advance for your continued patience while we continue to address this very challenging situation.

This was to be part of the Sustrans Spaces for People proposals linked to the pandemic recovery. This was discussed at the Community Council meeting on 31st April and a number of concerns were raised including the short time scale for responding and that local residents had not been involved. In addition several members of the CC studied the details of the proposals and we then gave a detailed response to the Council indicating why we did not want to agree to the structural changes proposed. It was finally agreed that the Council would ‘proceed with introducing a 20mph zone in Riverside and a behaviour change campaign’ but not the structural changes. ​ Going forward Stirling Council has agreed to a site visit to discuss the on-the-ground issues and to further community consultation regarding ongoing issues as well current pandemic difficulties.

February 2021 Stirling Council Media Release - E-Books Moving To New Platform E-Books from Stirling Council Libraries are moving to a new platform. ​ Access to digital e-books and audiobooks will switch from RBdigital to the Libby app on Tuesday 23 February, 2021. ​ Libby is a free, award-winning app where library members can continue to borrow and enjoy digital content from their public library. Readers will still be able to access their current downloads on RBdigital for the length of the lending period for each title, even if that date goes past the switchover on 23 February. ​ However, after this point users will have to download and sign up to Libby to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great e-books and audiobooks which were available in the RBdigital app from Stirling Libraries. ​ There will be some downtime in the RB Digital app in the afternoon of the 23rd February during the switchover.

January 2021 Rats in Riverside Gardens Riverside Community Council received a few reports of rats being seen in residents garden. Stirling Council was contacted. Their pest control officer had a walk through the locations we had been given notification of. On this occasion he could see no indication of rats. Stirling Council would ask that people who are experiencing a rat problem to log the job with their address so that they can carry out a proper inspection. You can call 01786 404040 or visit their website here to log a job for pest control and find out more information, including charges. ​ We were given further advice on measures people can take to deter rodents coming to their garden. Suggestions include: - ensuring your garden is tidy and that there is no nesting material or places they can make a nest, - removing any food source is a big help - if there’s nothing for them to eat they won’t be attracted to your garden - bird feeders as these are a major food source for rodents at this time of year, any spilled food from the feeders should be cleared up so the rats or mice don’t use it as a food source. ​ It was noted that the is little that can be done about rat activity on the river as Stirling Council can’t set bait boxes due to the danger it poses to wildlife. Ongoing Active Travel Survey Due to the COVID restrictions we have taken the decision to extend the Active Travel Survey. Find more details here .

November 2020 Police Warning - Courier Scam Police are warning people to be on their guards after a Stirling woman was the victim of a scam. The 60-year-old woman a contacted by phone on Saturday, 7 November, and told there was suspicious activity on her bank account. The caller advised a police officer would attend to collect the woman’s bank card, and a man arrived a short time later to do so. The card was returned several hours later. After several further contact attempts were made, the victim visited her bank where concerns were raised and police were contacted. Constable Bryan Mackie from Stirling Police Station said: “Luckily banking protocols prevented any money from being taken from the woman’s account, however it is important people are aware of this scam and avoid falling victim. “The man who collected the woman’s bank card is believed to have shown some form of identification, however a police officer would never arrive to take your bank card. We would urge anyone who is contacted by their bank, and is concerned regarding the legitimacy of the call, to hang up and call back the bank’s main number to confirm who they are speaking with. “Anyone with information or concerns about fraudulent activity can contact Police Scotland through 101.” October 2020 Viewforth Stopping-Up Order Please click here to see attached a letter from Drew Leslie, Senior Manager, Infrastructure regarding a Stopping-Up Order for Viewforth Link Road. To Be Confirmed Electric Car Charging Bays Riverside has been selected to trial chargers that are powered via the street lighting network. The bollards plug into the street light system but not the lamp posts themselves as they are only on for a limited time. Instead these bollards will take advantage of the network and be place on the roadside. ​ ​The bollards take up considerably less footpath space compared to most traditional charging units and have been very successful in London. These will be placed on Rosebery Terrace and Miller Place and will be the first in Scotland. If you have any question please get in touch - you can find out further information here .
