Drumchapel is no longer a stigmatised and deprived peripheral housing estate, but the central district in a western belt of centres that includes Clydebank and Bearsden. It is an area of vitality, with a high quality public realm, convenient transport options and a diverse mix of services and amenities. A strong community spirit exists, fostered through the bottom-up, self-organising approach that brought about its transformation.
