Published on:

May 2015

Consultation is underway to get community feedback on proposals to improve the environment of the area around Tron Court in Tullibody.

As part of the Council's Making Clackmannanshire Better programme, there are plans to invest in improvements to the area as part of the Village and Small Town Initiative, which has already been successful in Sauchie Main Street. Detailed proposals have now been put together following initial community consultation, and a booklet showing the detail of the proposals is now available in the Tullibody Civic Centre and on Clacksweb along with an online survey to gather feedback.

Over time, the external condition of the properties in Tron Court has declined, and the area is in need of refurbishment. Funding of around 628,500 is planned for investment in the improvements.

Proposals include:

- External refurbishment of buildings in Blocks A and B
- New glass canopies over shops
- Removal of plant beds
- Upgrading footpaths leading to Tron Court shopping precinct
- Upgrading of lighting to the shopping precinct, existing car park and lane
- Installation of pedestrian crossing at north side of Main Street near the Inn
- Installation of 'table top' surfacing to aid pedestrians, wheelchair & motability scooters
- Removal of lock up garages & other car park alterations to provide additional parking spaces along with more on street parking
- New drainage provision and street landscaping within Tron Court shopping precinct

These proposals are now going forward for community consultation, including meetings with the local community and surveys. The feedback gathered will be used to shape the final recommendations. It is hoped that work would start in August 2015.

Council Leader Les Sharp said: "I am delighted that the community now has the opportunity to see and make comments on the detailed proposals and plans for the improvements to the Tron Court area.

"Making Clackmannanshire Better means that we are bringing together the whole of the Council and our partners to ensure that we can make significant capital investment in our communities. This means we can focus all available budgets to maximise the improvements we can make to the quality of life for everyone who lives here.

"These plans along with the consultation which is also running in parallel on the plans to develop 21st Century educational and community facilities means this is the start of a significant journey for Tullibody."

The proposal booklet and online consultation can be viewed on Clacksweb.
