Welcome to Kilsyth Community Council

We are a group of elected representatives who aim to promote the town, protect our heritage and the interests of our residents but also encourage sustainable development in and around the town of Kilsyth.

Our monthly meetings are held in Burngreen Hall on the third Wednesday of the month, starting at 7.00 pm, and all residents are welcome to attend these meetings which are held in public. We welcome your interest in our activities.

Proposed withdrawal of services by First Bus with regard to the X86 Falkirk to Glasgow and no. 24 Stirling to Kilsyth routes

Our MSP Jamie Hepburn and MP Stuart McDonald have obtained an update from Paul McGowan of First Bus, as follows: The company are to implement a new service, 4B, which will link Kilsyth, Banton, Banknock and Bonnybridge to Falkirk and it will also extend to Croy. The bus will run from Croy Station, through Kilsyth etc to Falkirk and on to Grangemouth. The timetable will allow transfers to other services to take place through ticketing. The service will run on a six month’s trial period on a “use it or lose it “ basis.

To date we have no information as to the number of days or frequency of the new 4B service and as yet no information on the other proposed withdrawals.

Mr Hepburn and Mr Stuart were to meet with SPT ( Strathclyde Partnership for Transport) on Friday,8th July and any further developments will be reported as they are received.
