Free parking at one location in Callander should be part of the discussions between councilors.

Stirilng Council Environment and Housing Advisor Councilor Jim Thomson has agreed to meet with Trossachs and Teith Ward Conservative Councilor Martin Earl to learn more about the suggestion.

At a Stirling Council plenary meeting last Thursday, Councilor Earl asked the organizer when an initial period of free parking would be introduced at the parking lot at Callander’s Station Road.

However, Councilor Thomson responded: “A program of community parking management plans developed by the community has been followed, although this has been delayed, recognizing the need for effective consultation.

“Callander Community Parking Management Planning (CPMP) development has not officially started, although council officers have tentatively engaged the community over the past year on specific issues. It is expected that the process will start at the end of this year.

“Once the formal commitment associated with the Callander plan is initiated, consideration of parking options for Callander can be discussed.

“Thanks to existing discussions, agents are not yet aware of a community proposal to consider a period of free parking, but once that engagement begins, all options will be considered. “

Councilor Earl said: “I know the officers say they are not aware of any requests from the community, but there have been in the past.

“With the much delayed parking management plan, once it’s in place, it will take a tremendous amount of time, especially for Callander.

“I would like to request a specific meeting with you to discuss this in more detail and hopefully be able to explain how we can advocate for something to be done outside of the management plan process. “

Councilor Thomson said he would be happy to meet with Councilor Earl.

A Scottish student has died of carbon monoxide poisoning due to faulty heating in a holiday home owned by the Earl of Dalhousie and his heir Lord Ramsay.

Lord Ramsay was in court to hear his Dalhousie Estate-based farming business admit it put vacationers at risk of injury or death from poisoning.

Retired private school teacher Piers Le Cheminant – who sublet the property for the tragic breakdown – also admitted to committing the same health and safety breaches.

Thomas Hill, 18, a freshman at Stirling University, was found dead behind a bathroom door at Glenmark Cottage after succumbing to carbon monoxide poisoning.

Tax MP Gavin Callaghan told Dundee Sheriff Court: ‘Mr Hill was on 28 October 2015 on vacation with his girlfriend Mrs Beard and her family.

“The Beard family had rented a lodge – Glenmark Cottage – which is near Tarfside, northwest of the village of Edzell.

“The Cottage is owned by Burghill Farms, a general partnership in the fields of agriculture, sports and property management. During the defamation period, the company’s partners were The Earl and Countess of Dalhousie and their son, Lord Ramsay.

“It is understood that the partners are now Lord Ramsay and the Dalhousie 2021 Trust. The partnership is called Dalhousie Estates. The estate covers 48,000 acres.

“Mr. Le Cheminant is a historical user of the gîte … and has been renting it since 2008, with authorization to sublet it for seasonal rental.

“The facilities could rightly be described as basic. Heating and lighting were provided by a combination of gas appliances and candles.

“On Wednesday, October 28, Mr. Hill went for a bath in the afternoon. About an hour after going for a bath, Ms. Beard went to check that he was okay.

“The bathroom door was locked and received no response, entry into the room was eventually forced, after which Mr. Hill was found sitting, leaning against the door.

“There was a smell of gas emanating from the gas heater in the room, which produced a hum. It was turned off and CPR began.

“Considerable effort was put into resuscitating Mr. Hill by a variety of people, including the Beard family, plantation workers and paramedics.

“Mr Hill was placed in an ambulance for transport to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee, but was pronounced dead en route.

“A subsequent autopsy confirmed that the cause of Mr. Hill’s death was carbon monoxide poisoning.”

Burghill Farms and Le Cheminant, Spitchwick Manor, Poundsgate, Newton Abbot have both admitted putting people at risk of death at Glenmark Cottage for more than seven years.

They admitted that between March 1, 2008 and October 28, 2015, they failed to ensure that gas heaters were kept in a safe condition in order to avoid the risk of injury to vacationers.

They admitted that the heaters were used in rooms that were far too small and not well ventilated, nor were they adequately maintained.

The charges – under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations and the Occupational Health and Safety Act – state that “those in these premises have been exposed to a risk of injury or death. due to exposure to carbon monoxide “.

Mr Callaghan, on behalf of the Crown, said: “It was assumed that Mr Hill died of carbon monoxide poisoning and this was later found to be correct.”

He said an investigation revealed that there had been cracks in the radiator and that it was producing carbon monoxide far beyond safe levels.

“The accusations relate to the more basic problem that the radiators shouldn’t have been there at all, due to the volume of the room and the resulting risk of carbon monoxide exposure.

“The radiator should never have been in the bathroom. A knowledgeable gas engineer would have identified the risk. Neither Burghill Farms nor Mr. Le Cheminant had a proactive maintenance system.

“The four gas heaters were in rooms where they should not have been placed because the rooms were too small and insufficiently ventilated. They put people inside those rooms at risk.

“There would have been a number of people during the charge period. Anyone in the chalet during the period would have been at risk.”

Mr Callaghan said the criminal case would be followed by a fatal accident investigation “to examine the gas safety issues that Mr Hill’s untimely and tragic death has exposed”.

Sheriff Gillian Wade has postponed sentencing for reporting until the end of the month and lawyers for both defendants have apologized to Mr Hill’s family.

Outside the courtroom, Lord Ramsay said: “We offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Thomas Hill on their tragic loss and hope that today’s proceedings and the investigation into the fatal accident have served them well. will bring some comfort.

“As the owner of the property, Burghill Farms believed safety issues were taken care of, with a gas engineer handling the maintenance of the property.

“It became evident during the complex investigation of this case that what was asked of us went beyond and we admitted our share of responsibility in court today.”

Lord Ramsay is the son and heir of the Scottish landowner, the 17th Earl of Dalhousie.

It tells the story of composer / lutenist John Dowland’s contact with the Secret Service and how he manages to foil an Italian plot into the life of Queen Elizabeth I. Think Spooks, 16e In the style of the century! Ultimately, the fate of Dowland will be left in the hands of the public who will be responsible for deciding how the show should end.

Dominic Marsh, a regular at the Kneehigh Theater, has also performed at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theater and the Globe. Marsh will also be a familiar face to fans of Coronation Street, DCI Banks and Doctors.

Alongside Marsh, Danny Webb and Alice Imelda play supporting roles. Danny Webb is perhaps best known for being the sole survivor of Alien3, but more recently recognizable for his roles in ITV’s Liar, Channel 4’s Humans, and the 2021 Netflix film The Dig. Webb will play the exciting roles of Spy Master Sir Robert Cecil and Topliffe the Torturer, among others.

Alice Imelda, whose theatrical background includes creating Clare Norburn’s Carmen with CarmenCo, The Mad Ones (BJW Productions / Derby Theater) and Tell Me On A Sunday (The Old Laundry Theater), will assume the roles of Maria (the Dowland’s love interest) as well as future Mrs. Dowland and Queen Elizabeth I. Alice also appeared in the movie My Dinner with Herve (HBO / Red Castle).

The drama, directed by Nicholas Renton (BAFTA nominee Wives and Daughters, Musketeers, A Room With A View, Lewis, Silent Witness), centers on an extraordinary letter Dowland wrote to spy master Sir Robert Cecil in 1595. Au Time, Dowland was roaming Europe, having embarrassed that he had not secured a position as a lutenist at court when a post became vacant.

Cecil had signed Dowland’s travel papers and probably told him to “keep his eyes and ears open.” So when, as an English Catholic, Dowland is approached by English ex-Pats living in Florence and Rome, who are plotting to overthrow Queen Elizabeth I, Dowland provides the information on the plot and the key players to Cecil. . I, Spie, imagine the gaps in what we know about Dowland’s life at that time – what led him to the time he wrote this letter – but also what happened afterward.

“Being a Catholic informant in Elizabethan England was a dangerous business – no one trusted you completely, even if your information was useful,” says writer / soprano Clare Norburn. “The 1580s saw a series of Catholic plots and the terrifying threat of the Spanish Armada – and with the Queen aging without any clear succession, in 1595 there was a feverish sense of panic and suspicion. Against this background, it’s no wonder that Dowland’s letter reads like a man risen from his depths: he appears scared for his own life – and with good reason. Catholics who inquired were not always completely confident – many ended up at the gallows. But on the other hand, he disseminates information and effectively foils the intrigue… How involved was he in all of this? “

The practice of the Secret Service recruiting students from Oxford and Cambridge dates back to this period. It was often considered fashionable and exciting for students to immerse themselves in Catholicism. So there was a pool of potential recruits who had already shown Catholic tendencies and who could easily be turned into informants.

The origins of the modern Secret Service were formed during the reign of Elizabeth I – initially under the leadership of inspirer Sir Francis Walsingham, who initially had to fund the service out of his own pocket. His death in 1590 caused a void: and a struggle for supremacy between Sir Robert Cecil and the Earl of Essex. So there was a potential for a double transaction between the followers of these two key players within the service itself.

“What is fascinating is how contemporary the issues of freedom of espionage to pursue the security of the country are. I was also interested in what happens to a musician / composer who suddenly finds himself caught up in this world? How do I tell Dowland is an artist? Through the ages musicians and writers have been caught up in espionage: the best-known example from Dowland’s time is Christopher Marlowe; but there is also Dowland’s exact contemporary in Oxford, composer Thomas Morley, who also worked for the service. And later playwright Aphra Behn, writer Daniel Defoe… What does it mean to be a writer / composer / performer and in private also a bearer of spy secrets….? ”

Playwright Clare Norburn is also the soprano and artistic director of The Telling, renowned for immersing audiences in a world of music and theater. They will perform music by Dowland and his contemporaries, alongside Elizabethan tavern, street music and court mask.

The Telling have an impressive track record. Earlier in 2021, notable film and television actors Rachael Stirling and Alec Newman starred in The Telling’s online play along with the musical series, Love in the Lockdown, for which Nick Renton won the Best Director award. at the Screensaver Awards.
