Milngavie resident Eve Gilmore has started up a website to keep people informed of news on the planning proposals, called We Like Milngavie.

Visit ‘We Like Milngavie’

Eve has also set up a steering group of Milngavie residents to campaign against the plans. The group met on 14th January, when I presented to them the results of my survey. Please see the links below for more information.
