A PUBLIC meeting is being held to discuss demolition plans of four vacant tower blocks
The flats, Kinglass, Fruin, Endrick and Douglas - have been a part of the Dumbarton skyline since the 1970s and have been vacant for two years.
The plan is to clear the area and make way for potential new development in the future.
The demolitions are part of the wider regeneration of the estate of Bellsmyre and demolitions have already taken place with eight tenement blocks in the past few months.
This provided the council with three vacant sites on which it now plans to build 36 new council homes.
These will be completed by autumn 2014.
A public meeting will be held at 7pm on Tuesday, November 12 in St Peters Primary School, Howatshaws Road and there will also be a drop-in session in the school from 3.30 to 6.30pm on Tuesday, November 19.
Councillor David McBride, Convener of the Council's Housing, Environmental and Economic Development Committee, said: "The demolition of the 248 flats, following on from previous demolitions, provides the Council with an opportunity to continue the regeneration of the area. It's an exciting time for Bellsmyre."
