A cooperation agreement between Glasgow City Council and West Dunbartonshire Council has been developed to improve services relating to the net zero transition.

The agreement, which begins in August 2024, will see the local authorities cooperate in the development of a renewables technology strategy and the sharing of waste management and recycling treatment infrastructure.

The councils will also share expertise relating to the electrification of its fleet and the implementation of sustainable and active travel plans.

A Project Board will be established to oversee the agreement and resolve any issues that may arise during the life of the co-operation, with the board being led by senior officers in both local authorities.

Cllr Ruairi Kelly, city convener for Neighbourhood Services and Assets at Glasgow City Council, said: ‘This is a significant agreement, one that shows the benefits of local authorities working together to deliver the vital services our citizens require, in a cost-effective manner.

‘Co-operation between councils will be necessary to address the challenges of reaching net zero and this is a template that I hope we can see replicated.’
