To be approved.

Apologies: CCllr Graham Kilby

2. Minutes: Minutes of the 2015 AGM meeting were read, approved, and signed off.

3. Chair’s Report:

The elected members of the Community Council are as follows:-
• Kevin Borthwick
• Angus Cheape
• Trudy Duffy-Wigman
• Graham Kilby
• Graham Pye
• Richard Nesbitt

Sandy Morrison and Alastair Lavery have now retired. Again I wish to express our sincere thanks for their sterling service on the Community Council. Two of our members, Graham Kilby and Richard Nesbitt are new to the Community Council and they have had to hit the ground running.

The Community Council has had another very busy year with eleven scheduled meetings, additional meetings and a large volume of correspondence.

The main issues during the year have been:

• Travellers’ Site at Crook Moss: The majority of the planning conditions have not been met despite frequent representations to the Planning authority by the Community Council, members of the community and all the local councillors. The priority issues for the Community are noise and foul drainage. Some of the residents on site are trying to improve the situation. A second application for three additional pitches has been rejected by Perth and Kinross Council.

• Police Service: Unfortunately we are seeing a police officer attending the meeting less often. A monthly bulletin specific to the area is not produced anymore; we get most of the relevant information from the Commander’s bulletin and from Perth and Kinross Community Watch. We have the impression that rural crime in our area is slightly up.

• Lambhill Site: This application has been refused by the Local Review Body.

• Main Issues Report: We have consulted on the LDP2 MIR.

• City Link Time Table: We are shocked by the lack of co-operation to make sure Kinross is served by adequate public transport. Many of the regular bus services have been withdrawn, making it almost impossible to commute by bus.

• Blairingone War Memorial: Is now one of the longest running items on our agenda. It is unlikely that there will be a quick solution to this.

• Devon Hydro Scheme: The building of the Hydro Scheme is progressing well. We are now at the stage that we are setting up an organisation to distribute the monies generated – the developer’s contribution and the community benefit.

• A977 Mitigation Measures: Councillor Barnacle has been continuing with other councillors, the Community Council and members of the public to call for traffic mitigation measures. The situation was exacerbated earlier this year with the closure of the Forth Road Bridge, a few weeks for all traffic but a longer period for heavy lorries. The police have helped out with extra speed checks but the road has suffered and the road surface has deteriorated. We will continue to put pressure on the authorities and work together with the local members to make the A977 safer for the villages straddling it.

• Boundary Commission: Cllr Cuthbert has worked very hard to get members of the community involved in informing the Boundary Commission on their plans to cut chunks off Kinross-shire. We are awaiting their decision.

• Community Council Members: There is an urgent requirement for more Community Councillors, especially from the village of Carnbo, which has currently no representation in the CC. Our work relies on members of the community who have their ears to the ground.

• Community Initiatives: The CC is taking part in a number of community initiatives: the Emergency Support Centre, to be set up in the hall, Kinross Sports Hub, Crook and Drum in Bloom and perhaps the Best Kept Village competition. It is a wonderful way for members of the community to become involved.

There have been slightly less planning applications in the past year.

Thank you to my fellow councillors for their support and for the very significant efforts they have made in dealing with their portfolios and attending external meetings. Many thanks also to our local Councillors Barnacle, Cuthbert, Giacopazzi and Robertson for their significant support and assistance to the CC on numerous matters. Thanks also to our loyal Members of the Public, who support us with their presence, their information and their questions.

4. Secretary’s Report:

Once again it has been a very busy year for the Community Council, as we strive to be as actively involved in as many community issues as possible. This year as it was an election year, a couple of the regular members retired for a well-earned rest, and we welcomed two new members onto the council. I would personally like to thank Sandy Morrison, and Alastair Lavery for all the work they did over the years, and also to welcome the new members Graham Kilby, and Richard Nesbitt to the CC.

In my position as secretary, I have to deal with all the day to day correspondence and phone calls that come our way, and have also attend several meetings throughout the year. As I said in previous years, I have to do my best to handle this as it happens and not let it build up. This year however, at the turn of the year, an illness in the family took priority over most other things going on in my life, and the CC duties were beginning to build up and get on top of me. I have to thank Graham and Trudy who took over the majority of my secretarial role to let me concentrate on more important things. Things are looking positive at the moment on the family front, although it is still early days, and hopefully I will be able to get back in the saddle later in the year.

This year the correspondence has increased significantly since last year, partly due to signing up to Perth and Kinross Community Watch. However these figures are only up to the end of January 2016, when the email transferred to Graham and Trudy, so there are three months missing. Over the past year I have dealt with 1312 (1137 last year) incoming emails, and have sent out 443 (551 last year). Again I have to moan about the 154 (133 last year) spam emails we received. All of which come via the PKC email address and not our own one. Graham has been filtering these so we should in theory get less in the future. I also ran off 2651 prints (2049 last year) for the correspondence, minutes, and agendas etc. again a significant rise. This is a reflection of the increase in correspondence.

The Facebook page has been a great success, where we have been able to post information to keep people up to date with details of events, meetings, minutes etc. As well as being a way of getting in touch with the CC about community issues. Currently we have 154 people who receive our posts, which along with the newsletter and the notice boards, we are engaging with as many people as we can. Graham Kilby has taken over the running of the Facebook page, and I’d like to thank him for that.

As you can see there is quite a lot of work running a Community Council, and during this past few months everyone has had to muck in. However it would be a lot easier if we had a full complement of members. There are still two spaces on the CC, and anyone who wishes to help out would be very welcome.

5. Treasurer’s Report:

This year the CC received no income as the Administrative Grant from PKC of £424.31, which would have topped the CC’s funds up to the maximum £700.00 allowed, was unfortunately paid into the wrong bank account by PKC.

The largest item of the CC expenditure is for rentals of Fossoway and Blairingone primary schools, Carnbo Village Hall and Moubray Hall in Powmill to hold our monthly meetings. A total of £100.60 was spent on hall rentals.

Last year the CC invested in a Laser Printer, now an asset of the CC which will be passed on to whoever is the secretary. The secretary will no longer be charging the CC on a per print basis, other than for paper, and any other consumables required for the printer will be purchased directly by the CC.

All Community Councillors are allowed to claim for any expenses they incur over the year for travelling to meetings other than normal CC meetings, and also any other incidentals – postage, stationery, etc. This year only a little over £50 has been claimed in expenses. CC members attend a lot of meetings over the year, and should claim for them all – I encourage them to do so.

After all the transactions over the year had been tallied the CC had a closing balance at year end of £56.34. Hopefully next year’s grant will arrive soon!

Approval of the accounts was proposed by Trudy Duffy and seconded by Kevin Borthwick.

6. Confirmation of Office Bearers:
The Office Bearers all resigned from their current posts, and new post holders are as follows:

Trudy Duffy, Chairperson – Proposed: Kevin Borthwick, Seconded: Graham Pye
Kevin Borthwick, Secretary – Proposed: Trudy Duffy, Seconded: Graham Pye
Graham Pye, Treasurer – Proposed: Trudy Duffy, Seconded: Kevin Borthwick
Kevin Data Controller – Proposed: Trudy Duffy, Seconded: Richard Nesbitt

The following posts are not formal offices, so were not covered at the AGM:

Richard Nesbitt, Vice Chair

With no other business, the date of the next AGM was set for 2nd May 2017 and the meeting ended at 7.55pm.

Community Council Minutes - May 2016

Draft Minutes Fossoway and District Community Council
3rd May 2016, Fossoway Primary School

Attending: Community Cllrs: Trudy Duffy, Kevin Borthwick, Angus Cheape, , Richard Nesbitt and Graham Pye; Cllrs Mike Barnacle, Dave Cuthbert, Joe Giacopazzi and Willie Robertson; 14 Members of the Public (MoP).
Apologies: CCllr Graham Kilby
Declarations of Interest: CCllr Cheape declared an interest in Planning Application16/00514/FLL.
Police report: No report received. PC Spalding attended. Fossoway Garage drive-offs have been identified, but not yet apprehended. A motorist was apprehended speeding in Crook of Devon.
Nineacres Scout Camp, Crook of Devon: A local resident spotted a shelter that had been built within the grounds of the camp, and three men have been seen in the vicinity. The shelter was not constructed by the Scouts. CCllr Borthwick contacted Sgt. Nicholson who agreed to ask a local officer to make enquiries, but it doesn’t currently seem to be suspicious.
Local Policing Consultation: this year paper questionnaires have been replaced by an online survey, which is open all year - take part at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8LMB9WX
Perth and Kinross agricultural community and local farmers are invited to attend a multi-agency Rural Crime Event which is taking place at the Huntingtower Hotel, Crieff Road, Perth on Wednesday, May 11.

Minutes of the previous meeting: Minutes were signed off with an amendment to correct the location of the meeting to Carnbo Village Hall.

Matters Arising
Crook Moss Travellers’ Site: Cllr Barnacle reports that Scottish Water confirm the Drum treatment plant is at capacity and a growth project will take between two and two and a half years. The Drum scheme’s output is pumped into the River Devon and not into the Loch Leven catchment. Scottish Water clarified their position about order of connection in that residents who had applied first will be connected first. Cllr Cuthbert noted that the DMC will receive the updated report on the traveller’s site at the meeting next week.
A977 Defects and Mitigation Measures: A MoP reported details of an accident at Crook of Devon through our Facebook page. Several respondents to this item raised the issue of speed cameras – CCllr Duffy has been in touch with the chair of Kingseat CC, who also previously ran a Speedwatch scheme, to be told that previous insurance problems have apparently now been solved by the Police. Cllr Robertson undertook to contact Police Scotland to see if the Community Speedwatch programme could be restarted, having found from Kingseat how they are operating.
Emergency Support Centre: CCllr Kilby attended a Hall Committee meeting in April where it was agreed that the hall could be used as an Emergency Centre. Details of how to obtain keys, etc., are to be worked out.
Community Council Grant: CCllr Pye reports that PKC’s position is that the bank should not have accepted the deposit into the wrong account as the account name did not match. Regardless of this, CCllr Pye reminded PKC that the issue is for PKC to resolve, not us, and that they should discuss it with the bank directly. Meanwhile, the balance of the CC’s account has fallen to £20.34. PKC have subsequently agreed to reissue our grant for this year, and hopefully this will be in our bank account by the end of this week.
Blairingone War Memorial: Cllr Barnacle had written to David Strachan, of Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust seeking his opinion about the developer’s mason’s report. However it transpired that Andrew Driver, who gave the Trust’s previous opinion on the memorial is no longer with the Trust. It has emerged that the previous estimate was a desktop exercise rather than based on an inspection. It’s important that an alternative estimate be obtained, and the heritage trust has recommended a mason.
Ivy Cottage, Powmill: Cllr Robertson suggested that compulsory purchase might be the way forward.
Rumbling Bridge Hydro Scheme: Hugh Wallace attended the meeting and reported that the scheme is proceeding on schedule to be completed in the autumn. The first annual payment would be made in September 2017; however the majority of the project’s contingency fund has not yet been used, so it’s looking likely that some of this will be passed to the community later this year. James Buchanan from Local Energy Scotland had sent links to their documents about setting up a Community Benefit Group. CCllr Duffy will approach people with a view to creating a group, the CC will have at least one member.
MoP asked Hugh whether the road over the river would ever be completely closed, and when the works to pass the peipeline under the road are planned for – The works is currently planned for the first half of June, but the road will never be completely closed. Hugh reminded the attendees that if anyone would like a tour of the works they should contact him and it will be arranged.
Crook in Bloom: This group has had its first meeting, and will now be known as “Crook and Drum Growing Together” as Drum residents have joined the group. Bank account is being set-up and grant money will shortly be received, allowing some results to be seen this year.
Dunning Glen: Rubbish being left here has been an ongoing problem for several years, with various attempts made to address it – signs, professional clean-ups, police patrols, etc., have not resulted in a solution. Cllr Barnacle has written to Dave Stubbs to request a solution. Various opinions were expressed as to whether new by-laws, creation of national parks, increased police patrols, etc., might help. Cllr Robertson will write to Police Scotland and ask for their suggestions.
Kinross-shire Civic Trust Best Kept Village Awards: Patrick Milne Home had written to the CC with details of how to apply for entry to the awards, and a set of guidelines for organisers. The CC will forward these to any interested parties.
Station Road Adoption: Cllr Barnacle was contacted by a member of the Hall Committee, which has taken over this project, to say that Mr Fraser (one of the frontagers) has now objected to the adoption because of a belief that surfacing the road will encourage further development, as evidenced by planning application 16/00514/FLL, even though this has now been withdrawn. There was other support for this belief from MoPs present. Cllr Barnacle pointed out that the MIR rules out development in this area until at least 2028, and that not surfacing the road increases the likelihood of vehicle damage or other accident due to the road’s poor state. After expending considerable effort on getting this scheme in place, Cllr Barnacle expressed his extreme disappointment at this set-back.
Safer Route to School – Drum: A MoP asked how to get the speed limit on the B9097 lowered. This has been discussed before in conjunction with other measures to make this road safer, but has not as yet resulted in any results so far. Cllr Cuthbert will publish the local councillors’ list of requested improvements that have not yet been done.

Matters Arising With No Update Since Last Meeting
Boundary Commission: No update.
Bollards Opposite Crook Village Hall: Awaiting a report from PKC Roads Department on how the safety of this section of road could be improved.
Crook Moss Community Involvement: Ongoing.

New Business
Dog Waste in Drum: CCllr Kilby received (via Facebook) a report from a couple who are doing voluntary litter picking in Drum, that they are finding a large number of dog waste bags in the area. Since there appears not to be a dog waste bin in Drum, Cllr Robertson has asked PKC’s dog wardens to contact the CC to discuss locating a bin there.
Overgrown Path Drum to Crook of Devon: CCllr Nesbitt was contacted by a MoP who was concerned about the state of this path, which runs along the north side of the A977. The path suffers from two issues: There are numerous overhanging branches, one of which has caused an injury to a user, and the grass verges on both sides are so overgrown that the path is almost disappearing. Cllr Robertson reported the problems to Garry McConnell, PKC’s Area Road Supervisor, who has arranged for the path to be scraped and widened, hopefully at the end of May or beginning of June. The overhanging branches are the responsibility of the relevant landowners, who will be contacted.

Community Council Business
Meetings Attended: CCllr Kilby attended a meeting of the Sports Hub on 20th April, which will be reported on next month.

Councillors’ Reports
Mike Barnacle: In answer to comments from MoP about unpleasant material, possibly human waste, being spread on fields, Cllr Barnacle explained that SEPA rather than PKC is now responsible; although MoP points out that the council is still responsible for storage, leading to confusion about who to complain to in the event of any problems. Ragwort is harmful to animals, and hence needs to be reported to Animal Welfare.
Cllr Barnacle had asked for the passing place at the Aldie Road bridge to be properly surfaced, but there is no budget to do this. However, Stuart D’All has agreed that a sign will be erected.
Dave Cuthbert: Farmer’s Market 30th July 9am – 1pm in Kinross High Street. Feel Good Fair at LLCC 14th May. Cllr Cuthbert asked if any training for CCs was being received, but was told that there was none – The money saved on new budget system for CCs was supposed to be used by PKC for training them.
Joe Giacopazzi and Willie Robertson: Nothing not already reported above.

Planning Matters
16/00483/FLL Erection of a marquee for use as function venue, Function Hall, Solsgirth House, Solsgirth. The CC members discussed this further after the last meeting and decided not to comment.
16/00679/FLL Corrie-Tigh, Rumbling Bridge. Alterations to a dwelling house. No Community Council comment.
16/00620/FLL Land 70 Metres south-east of Merryhills, Rumbling Bridge. Erection of four dwelling houses and garages. No Community Council comment.
16/00514/FLL Erection of a replacement dwelling house at Land 200 Metres South West of Broomhill, Peat Gate, Crook of Devon. Comments were due on this application by 2nd May, so the CC discussed it by email and agreed to object on the grounds that the development was within the Loch Leven catchment area and hence appropriate measures were needed for sewage processing, and that this development would be contrary to the Houses in the Countryside Policy.. This application has now been withdrawn.
16/00545/IPL Erection of a dwelling house at land 30 metres east of Vine house, Solsgirth. No Community Council comment.

Correspondence: All the correspondence was available for viewing: George Lawrie of the TRACKS group has a new email address: moc.liamg|skcart.egroeG#moc.liamg|skcart.egroeG

AOCB: The Public Transport Unit is holding an open day from 9:30 to16:00 on 19th May in the Garden Room at Kinross Day Centre to receive feedback from the public about local transport needs.

Community Council Minutes - April 2016

Draft Minutes Fossoway and District Community Council
5th April 2016, Blairingone Primary School

Attending: Community Cllrs: Trudy Duffy, Kevin Borthwick, Angus Cheape, Graham Pye and Graham Kilby; Cllrs Mike Barnacle and Dave Cuthbert; Seven Members of the Public (MoP).
Apologies: Cllrs Willie Robertson and Joe Giacopazzi; CCllr Richard Nesbitt
Declarations of Interest: CCllr Duffy declared an interest in planning application 16/00538/FLL.
Police report: No report received. The CC was notified that PC Sturgess was unable to attend due to operational pressures. There was a theft of a charity box and cigarettes from Fossoway Stores, Crook of Devon, on 8th March. Around March 13th a bench, which had been located between large planters opposite the Aldie Road junction on the A977, was stolen. Chris Walsh had spent a considerable time restoring the bench. Police Scotland are about to launch Operation Tigerclaw which will increase the number of patrols in rural areas, perform more stop checks in the area and offer safety advice. Much of the above information, along with other useful things can be found by signing up to the Perth and Kinross Community watch to receive email alerts. See the website for joining instructions: https://www.pkcommunitywatch.co.uk/

Minutes of the previous meeting:
Minutes were signed off without amendment.

Kinross-shire Civic Trust Best Kept Village Awards: Patrick Milne Home attended the meeting to update us on the 50th year of the Best Kept Village awards. There are four villages in this area: Crook of Devon, Blairingone, Powmill and Carnbo that have all entered at various times in the past, but it would be good if Drum and Rumbling Bridge entered too. Only one person needs to enter. Judging is on general ambience, absence of litter, etc., not architectural value, concentrating on communal areas. Judging takes place on 26th July this year.

Matters Arising
Crook Moss Travellers’ Site: The recent planning application (15/02078/FLL) was rejected under delegated powers. The paper due to be presented at this month’s DMC has not appeared, possibly due to non-completion of Scottish Water’s flow and load analysis. MoP asked whether the travellers would be connected before other sites with existing planning permission. Cllr Cuthbert explained that Scottish Water has a prioritised list, and they should be contacted for information.
A977 Defects and Mitigation Measures: CCllr Borthwick has been in contact with Cllr Giacopazzi reporting that he’s seen temporary repairs being done. Cllr Giacopazzi explained that this is because category one (dangerous) potholes are temporarily repaired within three hours, allowing the normal squad to perform a permanent repair within two to four weeks.
Local members met with Stuart D’All of PKC’s roads department and heard plans for major works in our area of the A977 in the current financial year. The local members also had a meeting with Chick Haggart where it was agreed to prepare an outline business case for A977 improvements. As always, road problems (including potholes) should be reported to CLARENCE (the road report hotline) on 0800 232323.
Emergency Support Centre: CCllr Kilby reports that the Hall Committee has yet to meet to discuss this; it is on the agenda for the meeting in w/c 11th April.
LDP2 MIR Consultation: All submissions have been made and the planners will produce a draft plan in the autumn.
Boundary Commission: Local members have sent a letter to all MSPs, asking for their position on the “Kinross shire Question”. The Commission’s report will be made to Scottish Ministers at the end of May, but the Scottish Government has the final say, so it would be a good question to ask any canvassing MSPs.
Community Council Grant: CCllr Pye reports that the bank has still not been able to retrieve the money, so he has asked PKC to issue our grant again – they are looking into the matter.
Citylink Buses: Both Cllr Robertson and this CC have written to Citylink asking for restoration of the previous services from the Kinross Park and Ride. Cllr Robertson received a response from David Frenz agreeing to reverse the decision to stop the early morning G92 Edinburgh to Dundee stopping at Kinross, so it will now again be possible to board this service at 7:00am and get to Dundee for work. However there has not been a reinstatement of the stop at Kinross of the 5:15pm Citylink Express from Edinburgh.
Blairingone War Memorial: Cllr Barnacle has written to David Strachan, manager of Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust seeking his opinion about the developer’s mason’s report.
Ivy Cottage, Powmill: Cllr Barnacle reports that Building Control has raised serious concerns about the safety of the building, and will bill the owner for repairs if not done.
Rumbling Bridge Hydro Scheme: MoP asked about the establishment of the group to control the distribution of the Community benefit. Although this was previously discussed when the agreements were signed in November 2015, it was thought at that time that there was no urgency to set up the organisation to distribute the funds, as they were not going to start to appear until the scheme was operational. However, it would probably be a good idea to start the proceedings to establish this group, determine its membership and constitution, now that the scheme is proceeding well. The CC will ask Hugh Wallace to attend the next meeting to give a status report, and to allow discussion of establishing the group. The CC clarified its position that it had no preconceived ideas about how the funds should be used, nor did it intend to mandate this. Cllr Barnacle pointed out that the initial contribution from the scheme was covered by the planning application and there were some details as to how it should be used.

Matters Arising With No Update Since Last Meeting
Safer Route to School – Drum, Station Road Adoption: No update.
Bollards Opposite Crook Village Hall: Awaiting a report from PKC Roads Department on how the safety of this section of road could be improved.
Crook Moss Community Involvement: Ongoing.

New Business
Crook in Bloom:
This group will have its first meeting this week, with several interested participants. The Powmill in Bloom group are busy in their village, but they are concerned about the continued lack of repair to the Powmill bridge. Cllr Cuthbert explained that the works were suspended during the Forth Road Bridge diversion, and are scheduled to be done very shortly.

Community Council Business
Meetings Attended:
CCllr Kilby attended a meeting of the Sports Hub on 8th March where terms of reference were agreed. Clubs need to register with the hub by April 11th. Sports Scotland will in future make grants to clubs via Sports Hubs. The next meeting is 20th April where mission statements will be agreed. A substantial number of clubs are involved in the hub. Official launch date of the hub will be mid-June.

Councillors’ Reports
Mike Barnacle: Cllr Barnacle is campaigning to get the Ochils Hills declared a Regional Park and other groups have supported this idea.
MoP asks who maintains the Rumbling Bridge gorge – PKC does. MoP notes that the old Fish farm in Rumbling Bridge Gorge needs sorting out.
The passing place at Aldie Road bridge is being used for parking by users of the new multi-purpose path, and unlike the others in the road is not marked as a passing place, further it is in a very poor condition. Cllr Barnacle has already asked for the passing place to be properly surfaced.
Dave Cuthbert: Nothing not already covered.

Planning Matters
16/00274/AML Erection of a dwelling house (matters specified by conditions - 12/01566/IPL) at Burnside, Vicar's Bridge Road, Blairingone, Dollar FK14 7LR. At the last meeting we decided to await any local comments for two weeks, and as there were none, the CC did not comment.
16/00538/FLL Erection of a garage, Aitken Cottage, Main Street, Crook of Devon, Kinross KY13 0UR. No Community Council comment.
16/00483/FLL Erection of a marquee for use as function venue, Function Hall, Solsgirth House, Solsgirth. The CC members will discuss this further before deciding whether to comment.
16/00439/FLL (was 15/00450/FLL) Erection of a dwelling house and garage, Land 30 Metres North of Valerie, Fossoway. No Community Council comment.

All the correspondence was available for viewing. PKC have asked for the whereabouts of any publically accessible defibrillators – CCllr Kilby notes that there is one at LLCC. CCllr Duffy reports that there was a plan to provide one following the tragic death of Mr Mason, but it never happened. No-one present was aware of any others in the area.

PKC Roads Department Winter Service: The CC has received a request for any feedback about the provision of gritting and snow clearance this winter.
Planning Enforcement: PKC is conducting a survey about the performance of this department.
DRT Scheme: The Area covered has increased and there are now more operators in the scheme.
