In addition to the existing King Street, Queen Street and Princess Street it appears the City of Stirling could soon have a street named Queen Elizabeth Road.
A motion(see image below) from two Conservative Stirling Councillors will be put forward to Stirling Council containing a number of proposals to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's 90th Birthday which is in April 2016.
The main proposal is to rename Corn Exchange Road, where Stirling Council Municipal Buildings are based, to Queen Elizabeth Road as well as to update maps and signage for the new street name.
A portrait of the Queen at the Labour and Conservative run Stirling Council headquarters is also proposed.
The final proposal is to send heartfelt best wishes from the Council and the people of Stirling to the Queen for her 90th Birthday.
Funds from the council's civic budget will possibly be used for these proposals.
These proposals will certainly get the 'town talking' especially in the current climate of upcoming budget cuts and job losses at the council.
I have no great affection for the Queen or the royals but in the same tone I don't wish them any ill and I appreciate the Queens purpose and the longevity of her role as Queen Elizabeth of Scotland.
So what's peoples thoughts, should the final proposal of a simple heartfelt birthday message from the City be enough or is spending the time and money renaming a street a more fitting recognition.
Perhaps the chewing gum filled pavements of Corn Exchange Road will now be part of Clean for the Queen ;-)
