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, 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.
