About Clackmannanshire Council
Clackmannanshire Council is one of 32 Scottish unitary local authorities, serving a community of over 48,000 citizens in central Scotland. We share our borders with our neighbours in Stirling, Falkirk, Fife and Perth & Kinross. We've already achieved a lot - our work with economic development partners has already led to some dramatic transformations in the area. And while the industries that the area once relied on have declined in recent years, new business accommodation is attracting a growing numbers of new firms. Clackmannanshire's central location and ever improving transport links mean that Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Stirling are in easy reach. There's a lot going on here, and a lot of opportunities we're determined to realise. It will be a lot of hard work, but we know that the rewards will be worth it. We're committed to realising our area's potential and to delivering all we can to the people of Clackmannanshire. If you share our vision, you could be part of the next chapter of our success story.
