Kippen 20MPH Update

Hello Bruce,

I am the editor of the Wee Vine in Kippen. We featured an article in the winter edition last year on the success of the campaign. All seems to have gone quiet now.

It mentioned that works would be carried out this financial year.

Can you advise what the situation is now please?

Hello Denis,

Many thanks for getting in touch about this.

I have been in touch with the Council regarding the implementation of the 20mph zone in Kippen, which is subject to being approved by the planning panel. My understanding is that there were objections made to the Council’s planning application, which did not relate to Kippen. I have had assurances that officers are working on this matter and intend to introduce new signage to the area as soon as possible.

This is a disappointing delay, as finances have been allocated to this project. However, I will remain in close contact with Council officers and hope that this is only a minor delay to the implementation of 20mph zones.

I hope that this is helpful.

Kind regards,

Bruce Crawford MSP, pp.Lee Robb
