Falkirk Council & Falkirk Community Trust

Falkirk. The place to be...

The Falkirk Council area is one of the country's fastest growing. More houses are being built, our crime rates are among the lowest in the UK, our clear-up rates are high and 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 over the last decade has brought us iconic new buildings, such as The Falkirk Wheel, an exciting strategy to transform our town centres, better housing, new schools, good parks and open spaces, new roads and business parks. And 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.
