Scottish Green MSP Ross Greer says he's delighted to be welcoming his party colleagues to Clydebank for their 2023 spring conference. 

The conference, which takes place at the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel on Saturday March 25, will be a chance for Scottish Green Party members to celebrate fifty years since the founding of what became the UK’s three Green parties.

The party will also lay out its vision for a fairer, greener Scotland in the years to come.

Mr Greer, who represents the West Scotland region, will be giving the opening speech, which will include a focus on his campaign to stop Flamingo Land’s controversial proposals for a development at Balloch.

Speaking ahead of the conference, Mr Greer said: “I am delighted to be welcoming my Green colleagues to Clydebank for our conference at a really exciting time for the party.

“This is a crucial moment for Scotland and for the planet. The decisions that we make now will have a legacy for decades to come. 

“With Greens in the Scottish Government we have already delivered free bus travel for everyone under 22, a winter rent freeze, an evictions ban, record investment in wildlife, nature & recycling and increased the Scottish Child Payment to £25 a week for every eligible child.

“I am looking forward to meeting with our members to discuss how we continue delivering for people in Clydebank and beyond.

“I’ll also be encouraging party members to head up the road to Balloch to see for themselves what Flamingo Land’s proposals would do to one of Scotland’s most stunning landscapes."
