Almost two dozen trees are set to be felled throughout Clydebank if councillors give the green light.

Planners have recommended 16 lime trees, five sycamore and one silver birch be brought down on Bell Street, Edward Street, McGregor Street and White Street.

The trees were all covered by a 1993 tree preservation order in the area but the council wants to remove the 22 trees because of pedestrian and road safety.

A report to the planning committee, recommending the proposals, says the trees are currently “obstructing pedestrian, wheelchair, mobility scooter and pram access” on the pavements. Many residents have to go on the road to get along the routes.

They are also causing drainage issues for storm water flow.

The planning committee meets on October 6.
