Collapsed Wall Update
At the April 2019 meeting of the Environment & Housing Committee the result of the Collapsed Perth Rd Wall petition was to:
instruct Officers to arrange for the demolition of the wall, erection of post and wire fence and pursue reimbursement of costs from the landowners.
Under the ‘6 month rule’, officers and the Environment & Housing Committee are unable to accept the wall being repaired should the benefactor came forward only after the April committee, be able to meet all of the requirements and still kindly repair the wall out of their own pocket.
At the June meeting of the Environment & Housing Committee it was confirmed that the committee is unable to suspend the ‘6 month rule’, so the Conservative councillors on the committee were able to secure commitment that should the wall be able to be repaired as a result of the benefactor then a report will come to the 27th meeting of Full Council with a request for the ‘6 month rule’ to be suspended in this case and the decision amended to allow the wall to be repaired.
Stirling Council officers at the Environment & Housing Committee confirmed that they would expect the footway to be re-opened within 12 weeks.
Without the report going to full council it would not have been possible under Stirling Council standing orders (‘6 month rule’ in this case) for the council to have accepted the wall being repaired.
