Clydebelt started on 26 November 1990 at a public meeting of 400 people who were opposed to a horrendous planning application for the hills. We have carried out other campaigns for the Hills since.

But there have been attempts to rezone the Green Belt to permit leisure developments and housing (one succeeding), and planning applications as below.
