Current council

Renfrewshire council is currently run by a minority SNP administration.

According to the 2020 Hands Up survey 44.7% of children in Renfrewshire walked to school in 2020, 2.3% cycled and 1.7% scooted or skated. According to the 2021 Cycling Scotland annual monitoring report 2.7% of employees usually or regularly cycle to work and 26% of households have no access to a car. The council’s active travel budget for 2019/20 was £143,018.44 (capital) and £237,826.04 (revenue), which works out as a total of £2.13 per person. It does not appear to have an active travel strategy. In 2017 it refreshed its 2007 local transport strategy.
