Welcome to Govan Community Council

Govan Renewed

The restored Aitken Fountain is a symbol of the renewal of Govan over the past three years - with new housing being built, the Shopping Centre redeveloped, the Pearce Institute restored and work being undertaken to preserve the fabric of the historic Fairfield yard offices.

This renewal, in part the result of the Community Council's petition to the Scottish Parliament in 2002, has brought hundreds more people into the area who we welcome into the community and hope to see involved with the Community Council. However, the Community Council is well aware that, alongside the physical redevelopment of Govan, public services are being cut, unemployment increasing and benefits being reduced. 

The Community Council provides a forum for discussing all these issues and deciding on how to take forward campaigns for improvement.
