Menstrie Community Council
Dumyat Centre Extension Delayed
As you are all aware, we should by now be seeing work on the new extension to the Dumyat Centre well under way.
Unfortunately, a delay has occurred following a break-down in negotiations between Clackmannanshire Council and Gladedale, the developer. This is delay far outwith the Community Council's control.
We, as a community, were assured that the funds were in place in accordance with the Section 75 planning agreements and, having agreed final designs with Clackmannanshire Council, we expected work to commence immediately after the New Year.
It now appears, however, that there were time constraints in the agreements which have been implemented by the developer. As far as we are aware the developer has requested the funds be returned to them.
The matter has now gone to arbitration and we await the outcome.
