Planning for the future of East Renfrewshire

Key demographic trends (July 2016)

The new motto of East Renfrewshire Council is 'Your Council, Your Future' - and the future is exactly what this important document deals with.

Like the rest of Scotland, East Renfrewshire faces great changes in its population in the coming years. We expect our population to increase, to have more elderly residents, to see a decline in death rates and to have an increase in the number of households, as more people live alone. East Renfrewshire is already one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse communities in the country and we expect this trend to continue.
