Welcome to the website of Callander Community Council
In here you should be able to discover all you need to know about your Community Council and what we are doing on your behalf.
If you want to know more about the Community Council and your Councillors, together with a description of our duties and responsibilities then go to the ‘About Us’ section. All members of our community are welcome to attend our monthly meetings to find out about what is current, but if you are unable to do so, you will be able to read the Minutes of all of our meetings and individual Councillors’ reports by going to the ‘Meetings’ section.
One of our responsibilities is to comment on planning applications as they arise. More information on this process as well as details of current applications can be found in the ‘Planning’ section.
Your Community Council also administers a fund, known as the ‘Airtricity Fund’, which enables us to make small grants to organisations that have projects that comply with the application criteria. To find out more, go to the ‘Airtricity Fund’ section.
From time to time, major projects arise that could have a significant impact on our community. Your Community Council has a role to play in ensuring that the community’s views are taken into account. Details of existing projects are to be found in the ‘Current Topics’ section.
Callander’s Community Action Plan is an important element in the future development of our town. How this is progressing and who is doing what can be found by visiting the ‘CAP’ section and by visiting the CCDT section of the InCallander website
If there is anything you would like your Community Council to be aware of please contact us.

Support to Ukraine
The daily pictures we are seeing of the war in Ukraine have affected everyone. Many people are gravely concerned about the situation and want to do what they can to support those people forced to flee their communities and seek sanctuary elsewhere.
Stirling Council has received enquiries about how people can support Ukraine and those impacted by the conflict. As the situation is still very unclear and the needs of those fleeing have yet to be established, we would recommend making donations to organisations already working on the borders to provide support to people.
As the situation develops and the needs of people become more apparent support needs may change and aid agencies are better placed to respond to this. Several charities have launched appeals to help people in Ukraine. You can find out more and donate by following the links below.
We have been advised that uncoordinated deliveries of second hand goods risk adding to the pressures on the roads around the borders, hampering the delivery of resources needed by aid agencies and locals such as fuel and accommodation, and leave local suppliers out of the supply chain. We strongly recommend that groups direct aid via one of the existing charities who are arranging deliveries and aid nationally.
