Consultation on the East Dunbartonshire proposed local development plan
An eight-week consultation has been taking place on East Dunbartonshire's proposed local development plan, which sets out a five-year land-use strategy for the area and includes sites at Fauldhead and at the end of Bankhead Road next to the convent. The deadline for representations was 5pm on Wednesday 27 May 2015 so the time for filling in representation forms is now officially over. Once the definitive plan is published, Waterside Community Council will be providing an update on these pages.

Drop-in surgeries, meetings in Waterside
During the consultation period a series of drop-in surgeries took place in Kirkintilloch, Torrance, Milton of Campsie, Milngavie, Bishopbriggs, Lennoxtown, Bearsden and Lenzie to allow people to consult the plans on paper and talk to planning policy officers.
Waterside Community Council also held a very useful meeting at the Subscription School on Tuesday 12 May. Two planning officers were there to take questions and explain the current thinking. Excellent questions were raised by members of the community, and a group of attendees have since met to discuss further options.
What happens next?
The next community council meeting will take place at 7.30 pm at the Subscription School, Waterside, on 17 June 2015, and future activities will doubtless be on the agenda. Do come along if you'd like to have your say on these and any community issues. The community council is there to represent your views and undertake initiatives for the good of Waterside and area.
