Historic Kilsyth

Kilsyth is an historic town with a town centre that offers a range of traditional family owned businesses, these include butchers, a fishmonger, bakers and general stores.

This reflects its status as a historic market town and Conservation Area. The nearby Burngreen Park and Recreation Ground provides children's play facilities and is adjacent to the local library and community hall.

Kilsyth is located within the Kelvin Valley and is a gateway into the wider Campsies area. This offers a range of outdoor activities, pdf icon tourist attractions [8Mb] and points of natural and historical interest.

Local points of interest include the , Dumbreck Marsh Local Nature ReserveAntonine Wall and the Forth and Clyde Canal.

We are currently developing a Town Centre Framework for Kilsyth.

The Frameworks are supported by a Scottish Government commissioned review of the wider role and function of Town Centres with actions to tackle common issues and help deliver positive actions at a local level.

Kelvin Valley Action Plan Review

The Kelvin Valley Action Plan was produced in 2003 and sets out a 10 year vision for renewal of those parts of the valley located within North Lanarkshire. It is now timely to review the plan and prepare an updated plan which takes into account the remaining challenges and new opportunities for the area.

We are taking an inclusive partnership approach to review of the pdf icon Kelvin Valley Action Plan [2Mb]Feedback from surveys with local residents and businesses in Kilsyth and from local groups is helping us to prepare an updated Action Plan for the Kelvin Valley.
