CITY ENVIRONMENT

Street auditing & Improvements

The cleanliness and appearance of the city centre is a key concern of our business community.

We commission regular audits, conduct walkabouts and report any environmental issues to the relevant authorities, while our team frequently removes tags, graffiti, stickers and orgranizes regular litterpicking events and weeks of action targeting specific areas of concern.

We also install beautiful floral displays and our shop front improvement grant aims to give the city’s environment a boost and enhance Stirling’s overall appearance. 

We commissioned Keep Scotland Beautiful to conduct an Environmental Quality Audit of our City Centre and are currently working with our partners on developing an action plan to tackle the issues highlighted in the report to ensure the city centre is a welcoming destination for businesses, shoppers and visitors.

Winter Lighting

We annually invest in Christmas lighting to enhance the City’s atmosphere over the festive season. 

Recently, we invested in bespoke lighting for key Stirling streets with a vision to capture the city’s heritage and reflect how its key streets looked in years gone-by with traditional Christmas lighting. The new lights are also more energy-efficient.

Planting
& green interventions

We are investing in the beautification of our streets by adding an array of colourful plants.

In addition to our stunning trough planters, we proudly introduced pollinator-friendly, non-invasive native perennial bedding. Incorporating these specially chosen plants into our planting programme means we provide a safe haven for our essential pollinators and increase biodiversity.

We are always on the look out for projects to make our City Centre greener and more bio-diverse.

Vacant units

We delivered a groundbreaking augmented-reality art trail project called Street Stories using vacant units and turning them into points of interest.

We also work with commercial estate agents, vacant units landlords, local organisations and anyone interested in filling up our City Centre’s vacant units.

TURNING VACANT UNITS AROUND

We worked with the Street Stories team of design agency Arch Creative and Graffio Arts to deliver a new vacant units project, designed to improve the appearance of empty shops in the city centre and turn them into points of interest.
