    What we do

    We work to look after and help improve Baldernock, discuss issues of concern to the community.
    Learn more about what we do.



    East Dunbartonshire Council (EDC) and other bodies consult with Baldernock Community Council on issues affecting the community. These issues depend to a large extent on what is important to each community, however, local authorities are required to consult Community Councils on planning applications and many choose to involve them in the Community Planning process.

    Planning advice and the adopted Local Plan for this area can be found on the East Dunbartonshire Council website along with a search facility for all recent planning applications.  You can also check for information on grants for conservation areas when available.

    Police matters

    The speed of traffic in Baldernock is of great concern.  A community police officer from East Dunbartonshire Police is usually in attendance at our meetings to report on recent crime.

    Many matters are discussed including illicit dumping of rubbish.
