Cllr Alastair Majury on Dunblane Wall Woes Coming To An End
The saga of a collapsed wall in Dunblane, which has been cordoned off for more than two years, looks set to come to an end soon.
The wall separates a section of pavement at Ledcameroch on the B8033 Perth Road in the town from private land. A petition supported by local councillor Alastair Majury was tabled at a meeting of the council’s environment and housing committee asking the authority to find funding to repair the wall and investigate the possibility of seeking redress from the current or future owners.
At the recent June meeting of Environment & Housing Committee, council officers confirmed that they were working with an unnamed benefactor about the possibility of the wall being repaired rather than being required to be made safe and replaced with a wire fence by the council. Council officers have earlier this week confirmed that repairs to the wall have now commenced, meaning that the footway will be able to be reopened shortly.
Local Councillor for Dunblane and Bridge of Allan Alastair Majury said:
“I would like to thank the kind benefactor for commencing the repair work to this wall, and also the principal petitioner who by ensuring that this issue was heard at committee, as this has helped the community to reach the best possible outcome of the wall being repaired and the footway reopened.”
