Bridge of Weir Community Council is made up of local residents whose purpose is to represent the community in their dealings with Renfrewshire Council. It has with its active, elected, non party political membership, been successful in dealing with many issues involving planning, transport, education, environment, roads and housing. We also organise fundraising events throughout the year for the community to enjoy. 
This web site is maintained by the CC to provide information about Bridge of Weir and the Community Council, as well as maintaining an archive of local news and minutes of CC meetings. 
The CC 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. Keep up to date with the Community Council on our Facebook page.

Due to scheduled refurbishment in the Cargill Hall over the next few months, the next meeting of the Bridge of Weir Community Council will be in Bridge of Weir Primary School at 7pm on Tuesday 6th June.
