Access to Services and Transport

A lack of police presence was mentioned as something that people didn’t like and they felt this contributed to the growing anti-social behaviour in the town.  Local residents indicated they would like another post office in town that could offer a range of services and which was more accessible.  It was believed there would be a significant demand for support services, and mental health services in particular, as the country comes out of lockdown.  Some people were also unsure about how services such as the school, health, local amenities etc. would cope with the projected levels of new housing in Crieff.  Improved public transport connections was something that people mentioned and which they said could improve social mobility e.g. bus and train timetables complementing each other.  Young people in particular were keen for the public transport timetable to link in better with other service timings but also for additional options to travel to nearby villages and towns.
