Welcome to the Dumbreck Community Council Website.
Annual Boyne Procession update (17/6/2018)
A meeting took place within The Palace of Arts on Tuesday 12th June 2018. Present were Police Scotland, Denise Hamilton GCC, Glasgow life, various GCC Cllrs including Baillie Macleod, Craigton CC, Friends of Bellahouston Park, Dumbreck CC and Dumbreck residents. The Orange Order thanked for the invite but declined to attend.
The procession will leave George Square at 10.30 am on Saturday 7th July 2018 and will start to arrive at 12.30pm. The main parade enters Bellahouston Park at the entrance to The Palace of Arts, thereafter processing within the park to the south west area (Mosspark Drive at Bellahouston drive at the cycle track). The followers will be directed into the park prior to the procession entrance.
The procession is due to leave the park at 3pm by the same way it entered the park continuing eastbound on Paisley rd. west towards the City. At this time both East and Westbound Paisley Rd West will be closed.
Police Scotland stated that the timings are a guide and due to many different factors the procession can be early/on time/or late. This will have a knock on effect to the exiting of the park on time. At a previous community engagement meeting we were told that it takes roughly 1hr 20 mins from the front of the procession to the rear of the procession to go past a junction.
Dumbreck Community Council demanded the Temporary Traffic Regulation Order which is in place for only Paisley Rd West between Broomloan Rd and Helen St, be reviewed as it is insufficient. With the time taking for the procession to pass the junction of Paisley Rd West at Dumbreck Rd entering and exiting the park this will have a knock on effect to vehicles travelling around the park and further.
Once further information becomes available on this it will be posted
The acts have been announced for the August Summer Sessions Concert 2018.
Kings of Leon Wednesday 22 August
Catfish and the Bottlemen Saturday 25 August

Further Community Engagement meetings are planned, this will also include the annual Boyne Parade which takes Place on Saturday 7th July 2018. Once the the Community Council has a clearer picture of the details involved in the Parade we will publish them here and on our Facebook page.
