On February 2nd 2018, Stirling Council confirmed that the budget option relating to funding cuts for the Stirling Smith had been removed from their budget proposals for this year.

Leader of the Council, Scott Farmer, is quoted in the Stirling Observer as saying they had listened to public opinion and heard "the validation of this administration's long held position - that the Stirling Smith [is] an invaluable asset in our community".

Whilst this is a welcome development, the Friends remain vigilant.
