Community Council

The Community Council was a little depressing last night. Motivated people who care about the village worn down by being unlistened to.  Someone from Stirling Council was trying to get us to form a local community development plan. The claim is that this will improve citizen action and increase involvement in local democracy. We were also told that this is because funding bodies don't listen to elected representatives any more, preferring to deal with “the people”. How all this improves local democracy, I am not at all sure.
