8. BGCC Accounts
The Treasurer confirmed the accounts for the end of the financial year 2018/2019 had been audited and submitted to PKC. !
(9.01) Heart of Scotland Tourist Route Recent publicity has identified a route around
Perthshire to show off the scenic countryside. Following some adverse publicity of the Route 500 around the North of Scotland, because of the increase in traffic on unsuitable(single carriageway) roads, the opinion of those present at the meeting was the Perthshire roads would cope with the traffic and certainly many of the local businesses would welcome extra trade.
(9.02) Braco Village Hall A meeting had been held with PKC Property(Schools) to discuss the proposed changes to the Toilets. The proposals put forward were welcomed by the Hall Committee and a start date for the beginning of July was agreed. The proposals to construct a storage area on the North side of the Hall was also agreed, although no start date was put forward. There was concern that those items currently stored in the Toilet area (tables, gym mats etc.) would block the Hall if the storage area was not started soon.! (9.03) Community Investment Fund Round 2 of the CIF will be open to community-led projects from 13 May. Projects welcome.
(9.04) Supplementary Guidance Consultation PKC is preparing a new and updated Supplementary Guidance to support the Perth and Kinross Proposed Local Development Plan which is scheduled for adoption later this year. Comments are sought on the proposals and can be viewed online at www.pkc.gov.uk/ldp2guidance
(9.05) Safety in PlayPark A report has been received from the School on the condition of the goal posts situated in the Play Park. An inspection had not identified any damage and if the school wished to use them it was up to the staff to supervise children using the goals.! (9.06) Car Park at Bowling Club Questions were raised as to the ownership of the Car Park at the Bowling Club. The parking of two large caravans on the pathway adjacent to the Church boundary wall restricted the use of this area together with a number of commercial vehicles also parked on this strip of land. It was hoped some amicable solution could be reached. The Bowling Club had removed their temporary boundary fence alongside the road which did enable prams, walkers etc. to proceed safely from the Ardoch Estate into the village.
(9.07) European Elections. The Secretary reminded all the Village Hall will be required as a Polling Station for the European Elections on Thursday 23 May 2019.
The Meeting closed at 20.45pm
Date of the Next Meeting: 13 June 2019, 7.30pm Braco Village Hall.
