MSP Gil Paterson hosts meeting with community council representatives across Clydebank and Milngavie
MSP Gil Paterson has held a meeting with representatives from community councils in his constituency Clydebank and Milngavie.
It is part of a new initiative to increase communication between community councillors and the MSP so he can assist with local issues they are tackling.
The meeting was held on Monday October 2 in the Titan Enterprise Business Centre in Clydebank.
Mr Paterson added: “It was a very successful first meeting in Clydebank where we discussed a number of matters affecting the whole constituency such as problems with the Hardgate Roundabout.
“I also got a great opportunity to hear what the local concerns are of each of the community councils who in turn benefited from hearing what others are doing in their locales.
“Community councils have a huge amount to contribute and I hope to hold these meetings regularly to ensure I can see how I can help them in the good work they do.”
