Campaign News

Castle Woods

HCWG is currently engaged in two campaigns to protect and enhance the distinctive wooded environment of Helensburgh. These are at:

Castle Woods: Here we are seeking to save the historic Castle Woods from destruction by a proposed housing estate of between 48 and 72 dwellings and ensure instead that it is turned into a well-managed community woodland.
Cumberland Avenue: Here, we are working hard to secure the restoration of land at Cumberland Avenue, where woods were felled in 2011.

These campaigns have been widely reported in the local press and on the internet. You can access the latest news and past stories below, including that directly from HCWG.
