Outdoor drinking byelaws for Loch Voil, Loch Doine and Loch Lubnaig

Thursday 3rd August, 2017

Loch Lubnaig

Byelaws prohibiting outdoor drinking on the shores of Loch Voil, Loch Earn, Loch Doine and the North West area of Loch Lubnaig will come into force next week.

Stirling Council agreed at its meeting on Thursday 2 March 2017 to proceed with the amendment to the Stirling Council Prohibition of the Drinking of Alcohol in Public Places Byelaws.

Scottish Ministers have now approved the amendment to the byelaws for the Stirling Council area, which will be enforced from 7 August 2017.

Councillor Maureen Bennison, Convenor of the Public Safety Committee said: “Byelaws prohibiting outdoor drinking have already proven to be successful in a number of local towns and villages across the Stirling Council area, as well as on the East side of Loch Lomond. We decided to explore amending our current byelaws to include Loch Voil, Loch Earn and the areas of Loch Lubnaig overseen by the Stirling Council following discussions with local residents. Thank you to all who took part in our consultations.”

Consultations regarding the amendments were carried out with the Lochearnhead, Balquhidder and Strathyre Community Councils, Police Scotland, Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Perth and Kinross Council and Procurator Fiscal Service for Stirling.

The Byelaws Prohibiting the Drinking of Alcohol in Designated Public Places originally came into force in the Stirling area on 10 August 1998 and have been amended since to extend to a number of areas within the Stirling Council area. The areas covered by the Byelaws are Stirling, Bridge of Allan, Cambusbarron, Fallin, Throsk, Cowie, Plean, Callander, Dunblane, Strathblane, Blanefield, Balfron, Killearn, Arnprior, Buchlyvie, Gargunnock, Kippen, Doune, Deanston, Drymen, Fintry and the East Side of Loch Lomond.

Copies of the Byelaws, all previous amendments and corresponding plans are available for inspection at the Council’s offices at Old Viewforth, Stirling from 9 am until 5 pm, Monday to Friday.
