Alastair Majury on Dunblane’s Common Good Fund

Stirling Observer Coverage of Common Good Fund

At the Tuesday 28th May 2019 meeting of the Audit Committee, the accounts of the Common Good Funds were up for review.

I took the time to highlight that out of the four Common Good Funds that Stirling Council administers, Dunblane’s is the only one to have had zero applications since it was established. Although not the only forum the council’s Chief Finance Officer did explain that it would be normal practice for the local Community Council to promote the existence of a Common Good Fund and encourage suitable proposals that require funding to apply.

Stirling Council currently administers 4 Common Good Funds namely:

· Stirling

· Bridge of Allan

· Callander

· Dunblane

Both the Dunblane and Callander Common Good Funds are smaller than the Bridge of Allan’s and Stirling’s, and the current size of Dunblane’s is less than what Bridge of Allan has distributed so far, however the fact that remains the money is sitting in a bank account that good perhaps be put to better use in the community.

In the past ten years, the community of Bridge of Allan has benefitted from £49,317 worth of applications to the Bridge of Allan Common Good fund being granted.
