A SPIRITED fight to save greenbelt in East Dunbartonshire was “undermined”.

That’s the view of the council’s deputy leader Billy Hendry, who has been invited to discuss the decision, which was recently rubber-stamped by the Government, with Minister Aileen Campbell.

Earlier this year an appeal by housebuilders to the Scottish Government Reporter led to a number of sites identified as ‘no-build zones’ by East Dunbartonshire Council being released for development.

Councillor Hendry said the council’s attempts to defend the greenbelt had been undermined.
