Falkirk. The place to be...
The Falkirk Council area continues to grow. More houses are being built, our crime rates are low and our clear-up rates are high. We are one of the best connected places in Scotland, with major motorways, excellent rail connections and expanding port facilities at Grangemouth. With stunning natural landscapes and areas of heavy industry, it's an area of contrasts, with the thriving town of Falkirk at its heart.
Our track record of success has brought us iconic new attractions, such as The Falkirk Wheel, The Helix and The Kelpies. We have developed exciting strategies to transform our town centres, provide better housing, new schools, good parks and open spaces, new roads and business parks. The area is full of historic attractions, ranging from Callendar House to the distinctive "Pineapple" at Dunmore, alongside all the leisure opportunities you'd expect from a vibrant area in the very heart of Scotland.
When it comes to quality of life, Falkirk delivers.
