Project background

West Dunbartonshire Council received £19,206 to undertake the Kilpatrick Hills Study to explore the potential of the hills to contribute to the CSGN and to identify a number of priority projects to be taken forward by the Council and its partners. The study recommends the establishment of a Kilpatrick Hills Working Group to take forward 6 actions around: developing a Communications Strategy to raise awareness; improvements to existing parking at major access points; linking three native woodlands to reduce fragmentation; hedgerow improvements; providing a link from Mugdock to Balloch (as part of the proposed John Muir Way); and other access/information improvements to improve the quality of the experience for residents and visitors. The partners are now considering how to implement the proposals.
