Falkirk East

Falkirk East comprises urban and rural areas, including the major petrochemical cluster around Grangemouth, which is now home to the three biggest chemical firms on the planet – Dow, BASF and Ineos. Grangemouth is also Scotland’s busiest port.

The local authority is Falkirk Council (covering Falkirk East and West). Many local organisations cover Falkirk, Stirling, and Clackmannanshire, generally described as Central Region (as in the former regional council) or Forth Valley (e.g. health services). To confuse matters, the Central Scotland area for list MSPs stretches from Falkirk East to Kilmarnock and Loudoun, but does not include Stirling or Clackmannanshire…

Falkirk East includes the communities of South Alloa, Airth, Letham, Carronshore, Carron, Stenhousemuir, Skinflats, Grangemouth, Bo’ness, Blackness, Laurieston, Westquarter, Polmont, Redding, Reddingmuirhead, Brightons, Rumford, Maddiston, Whitecross, Loan, Standburn, California, Shieldhill, Jawcraig, Slamannan, Avonbridge, Binniehill and Limerigg.
