There are several vacancies on the council. We welcome citizens from across the North Kelvin community to join us as elected members or as associates. (Associates can contribute their views or expertise but don’t have voting rights.) The more diverse our membership, the more able we are to reflect the wider community’s views.

If you would like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

We also welcome attendance by members of the public at our meetings. And remember you can sign up for our newsletter or read it online.

See our Terms of Reference (pdf) for the responsibilities of the various positions on the council.

City councillors also attend our meetings.



  • Hello, I would be grateful if you could advise me on who to conctact regarding the space at the top of Oban Drive, on the right after No.67 I think. It does not seem
    to belong to anyone who is interested in the upkeep and state of vegetation etc.
    Along with overgrown bushes and grasses which encourage the disposal of litter, there are a number of trees which are overhanging the pavement and the road parking areas. these are surely a Health and Safety issue with regard to the Glasgow Council being involved. I have been unable to find a specific link in the
    Glasgow.Gov. website. Thanking you.

  • Hello Eddie, thanks for your message and sorry about the delayed response. We think it belongs to the adjacent house, actually Fergus Drive. Oban Drive ends at its junction with Fergus. (Someone had asked at one of the meetings if we could plant it.) Will check at our next meeting (7 May).

  • Hello, I’m writing on behalf of my Neighbour at 2 Oban Drive and myself 4 Oban Drive regards the new parking plan for North Kelvinside.
    After studying the plans in more detail we’ve noticed that we have a protected zig zag zone directly outside our houses.
    We were wondering whether:
    This was necessary
    Why we seem to be the only residents in this new parking plan that haven’t the option of parking outside our property.

  • Thanks for your message. We will try to bring this up at our meeting on 5 November but you may be best to feedback your view to the folk in charge:
