About Clydebelt

Clydebelt is dedicated to retaining and enhancing our heritage and the green belt status of the Kilpatrick Hills and their surrounding environment in Clydebank, Dumbarton, Milngavie, Bearsden and Glasgow.

Clydebelt is concerned with other undeveloped areas nearby, including the north bank of the River Clyde, and in the "villages" of Old Kilpatrick, Dalmuir, Duntocher, Hardgate, Faifley, Drumchapel, Craigton, Carbeth, Gartocharn, Jamestown, Bonhill, Milton and Bowling.

Many values and attitudes are shared by members.

What does Clydebelt do? Campaigns on current issues, helps local communities and influences planning policy.
