As local communities, we are very much aware of the privilege that it is to stay in such a beautiful part of the world and we welcome the protection that is provided by the inclusion of our area within the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. The National Park Authority provides many excellent facilities to highlight some of the beauty spots and to accommodate the many visitors who are encouraged to come and experience the grandeur of our natural surroundings. From time to time, however, the pressure of visitors can be overwhelming and people who are not used to this environment can create intermittent or even ongoing problems for local residents. This short article outlines some of the ways in which local communities and businesses can report such problems and ask for help, either immediate or longer-term.
Immediate problems, such as crime, anti-social or dangerous behaviour should be reported to the POLICE, telephoning 999 if life is in danger or a crime is in progress OR 101 for recurring or intermittent problems. Similarly, telephone 999 for the Fire & Rescue Service where a fire is out of control or life is in danger.
Litter and fly-tipping should be reported to the appropriate local authority. In our area, this is most likely to be STIRLING COUNCIL. Use this link to their website for further details. Contact Stirling Council
Irresponsible or dangerous parking should be reported to the POLICE by telephoning 101.
Irresponsible camping, toileting or use of land should be reported to the NATIONAL PARK AUTHORITY by telephoning 01389 722600.
General feedback for the National Park Authority can be sent by email to the National Park Authority.
