11.10.10. Today Andrew Poulter and Fiona Fisher submitted the petition with 468 signatures on it.
Thanks are due to all signatories! An indication has been given from the Council that there will be a Green Belt review for Dollar as elsewhere in Clacks, under the Development Plan consultation.
Your support may be needed again.

Dollar has inadequate Green Belt provision in comparison to the other hillfoots towns. Menstrie, Alva and Tillicoultry all have encircling protection. Dollar and Muckhart do not.
Dollar Civic Trust believes that this places the town of Dollar at risk from speculative development. Developers have expressed an interest in more development sites South and East of Dollar (in comments on the Local Plan in 2009). This is where the Green Belt is needed.

UPDATE 08 September, 2010
STOP PRESS! Now there now over 450 names and the petition will close in two weeks time. We hope to get up to 500 and take it to Clackmannanshire Council and the Press. Thanks to all and keep those signatures coming!
MAKE SURE EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT IT. PAPER PETITIONS ARE AT 26 BRIDGE STREET.
We, the undersigned, call on Clackmannanshire Council to urgently consider a review of the Green Belt protection around Dollar.
It is our belief that the current insignificant Green Belt should be extended to protect the town from future development which threatens to harm the character and amenity of Dollar.
