Muckhart Community Transport Surveys

Muckhart Community Council are keen to find out about your unmet transport needs. One potential solution would be Community Transport. Discussions have been taking place with Glenfarg Community Transport Group (GCTG) about a possible collaboration to progress this issue.

Community transport is not just about moving people from point A to point B.  It is about fostering a sense of belonging, bridging divides, and empowering individuals to access education, employment, healthcare, and social opportunities that are the bedrock of a thriving community.  Community transport provides flexible and accessible community-led solutions in response to unmet local transport needs.

How to Participate: There are two surveys, one for everyone and one for those aged under 22. These are being delivered to your letter box and word versions can be accessed here.

Message from MCC Secretary

Hi

Many thanks to Gillian for her duties as secretary of Muckhart Community Council over the last year. As I’m sure you already know, Gillian is now chair and I have taken on the role of Secretary.

It is my intention to send out a weekly list of notices and other information to residents who have signed up to MCC. I will be moving this to Mailchimp over the next couple of weeks, this will give you more control to opt in/out of receiving communication from MCC. Anything urgent will be posted on our facebook page and/or website.

So, new notices/information this week-

1. 5-6-2173 The Clackmannanshire Council, A823 Muckhart (Temporary Prohibition of Driving, Parking and Loading) Order 2022

2. 5-6-2162 The Clackmannanshire Council, A91 Pool O Muckhart (Temporary Parking Suspension) Order 2022

3. Springfield Homes Pool of Muckhart Development Virtual Walkthrough Pool of Muckhart (virtual-walkthrough.co.uk)

4. Street Lighting Faults – register on Report it – Clacks.gov

All street lighting faults should be registered on the new, redesigned clacks web fault reporting tool.

This will automatically send the faults to the street lighting team – this speeds up the response time and cuts out double handling of information”

Event

In September, Elect Her – a non-partisan CIC supporting women on their political journey – are hosting a month-long series of webinars, entitled Her Life in Politics, exploring every role in Scottish politics. Each Tuesday at 7:30-9pm, elected representatives from across the political spectrum will share their journey into politics and experiences since.

 

On Tuesday 20th 7:30-9pm, the webinar will focus on Community Councillors, hearing from Karen Harcus, Alison Lowe and Elizabeth Brown and with facilitation from former community councillor and chair Lauren Bennie. This webinar is a great opportunity for any woman motivated to create positive change in her community to learn how becoming a community councillor can help put ideas into action, learning from other women’s lived experience and meeting like-minded women along the way.

 

If you know a fantastic woman who you would like to encourage to become a community councillor, please invite them to this free online event so they can start their political journey today. Full details on the event, including how to book, are available here: https://www.elect-her.org.uk/events-workshops/her-life-as-a-community-councillor

 

The full webinar programme is as follows:

All webinars are open to women from across Britain, either new or existing members of the Elect Her community, and will be BSL interpreted and include closed captioning. ’
