1. The MIR assumes that growth in population and housing will bring sustainable economic growth along with jobs in the county. Please could you provide evidence to support this main issue?

2. Why does the infrastructure section not allow for any significant road network improvements in the county and relegates the upgrade of the B9140 to a distant ‘dream’ rather than a necessary support requirement for the infrastructure to meet increasing demand from a household increase of 43% - a main factor in the increase in car usage?

3. Why is the growth level preferred so much more than that of the Local Plan?

4. Is the large growth vision, coupled with the pro-development approach couched in the Planning legislation, not going to lead to a loss of valuable natural, cultural and built heritage?

5. Under section 3 Spatial Strategy could you provide an additional option of moderate growth?

6. Is there any evidence of a shortage of houses or current in-migration of Clackmannanshire?

7. What kind of houses and therefore groups are envisioned, other than younger people and families to address the ageing population?

8. Without employment, does this not lead to highly unsustainable increase in commuting to work outside Clackmannanshire?

9. If the latest GROS projections prove to be wrong and population does not grow or household formation increase, as predicted, will the targets be revised downwards?

10. Will property values and amenities not be adversely affected if there are sites and houses lying empty, in the event that the population boom does not happen?

11. If Dollar and the East support a different vision from the other parts of Clackmannanshire, is it possible for one area to pursue a different vision?

12. If the majority of the residents of Dollar state that they want moderate growth only, coupled with extended Green Belt and enhanced natural and built environment, will Clackmannanshire Council implement that advice?

13. On page 15 Diagram 2 – could you please supply the actual numbers as well as the illustrative information?

14. Is it possible to meet the targeted preferred housing growth out of 'established sites' and 'potential additional expansion sites'? Or does that require sites that are currently not thought suitable (shown in red)?

15. Is it possible to have copies of the Housing Needs and Demands Assessment and the Housing Land Audit to which the MIR refers?
