Bridge of Weir Community Council has since the last quarter of the 20th century served the village by taking up and trying to solve any problems arising therein. It has with its active, elected, non party political membership, been successful in dealing with many issues. Matters such as Transport, Education, Environment, Roads and Housing are a sample of such.
The Council meets in the Cargill Hall on the first Tuesday of each month - no meetings in January, July and August. It is an open meeting and all are very welcome to attend. Our aim is to try to improve the environment in all areas and to preserve its village identity.
This web site is maintained by the Community Council to provide information about Bridge of Weir and the Community Council, as well as maintaining an archive of local news and minutes of Community Council meetings. Our website is currently under revision so you may notice some changes happening over the summer months. Rest assured, we aim to complete this as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Community Council submission - Gladman planning application
Gladman Developments Limited have submitted a proposal of application notice to Renfrewshire Council for a residential development on Green-Belt land lying to the north of Kilmacolm Road. This is a large site, approximately 4.4 hectares, and, if approved, will be a major development. The public consultation, held in the Cargill Hall, outlined the application in principle, but gave no detail on the number, style or quality of the houses or on any infrastructure changes planned. This is simply a pre-cursor to submitting a planning application for approval in principle for the development with detail to follow at some future date. An exit poll of residents leaving the public consultation showed 90% against and 10% for a development at this location. The community council will write to Renfrewshire Council with it's concerns and will review their response when further detail of the proposals become available
