Welcome to Helensburgh Community Council
The Helensburgh Community Council is pro-active in seeking to make Helensburgh a great place in which to live, work and play. We are established by Government statute to ascertain, co-ordinate and express the views of the community and to take such action in the interests of the community that appears expedient and practicable.
Our members are spread across the town boundaries. We include among us a mix of age and experience, from our retail community, our growing Naval community and we have co-opted a youth forum to represent the youth of the town.
The town has 18th century roots and is situated in one of the most picturesque areas of Argyll & Bute, at the gateway to the Highlands. It enjoys urban, countryside and coastal landscapes. Two conservation areas make up a third of the town area, with a grid pattern of streets lined with blossom trees and wide verges. Included in this is the historic interest of noted Scottish architect-designed houses and the major tourist attraction of the Rennie Mackintosh-designed Hill House.
We lie between the lochs of the Clyde estuary and adjacent to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Those with an energetic disposition can walk the John Muir Way and the Three Lochs Way or take the Kayak Trail. The West Highland Way lies over the hill at Loch Lomond.
Keep up to date with the Community Council's meetings at the Agenda & Minutes page, our News page and the Calendar of events. We also have a set of Town Information links - various clubs and groups in the town, as well as links to Argyll & Bute Council's pages.
