Clydebank was a district council area which existed from 1975 to 1996. It was one of 19 district councils that delivered a range of local level services within the wider area of Strathclyde Region, which over this period was one of the 12 regions into which Scotland was divided.
Clydebank was one of the five district council areas within the Dunbarton sub-region of Strathclyde, and it was formed from part of the traditional county of Dunbartonshire. The result was a small district that lay on the north bank of the River Clyde and included the town of Clydebank and the surrounding area. It was bordered by the districts of Dumbarton, Bearsden & Milngavie and Renfrew in Strathclyde; plus the Stirling District of Central Region.
When regions and districts disappeared from the scene in a major reorganisation of Scottish local government in 1996, the district council area of Clydebank became part of the unitary council area of West Dunbartonshire, one of the 32 unitary council areas into which Scotland has since been divided.
