East Dunbartonshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhùn Breatainn an Ear, ) is one of the 32 council areas of Scotland. It borders onto the North-west of the City of Glasgow. It contains many of the suburbs of Glasgow as well as containing many of the city's commuter towns and villages. East Dunbartonshire also shares a border with West Dunbartonshire, Stirling, and North Lanarkshire. The council area covers part of the former county of Stirlingshire as well as parts of the former counties of Dunbartonshire and Lanarkshire.
The council area was formed in 1996, as a result of the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994, from part of the former Bearsden and Milngavie and Strathkelvin districts of the wider Strathclyde region.
As a result of the 2007 election, the Scottish Liberal Democrats lost control of East Dunbartonshire Council, with one of the primary grievances amongst the electorate being fortnightly Waste collection, after the introduction of Kerbside collections. It is currently controlled by a Labour/Conservative coalition due to no single party having overall control. The current leader of East Dunbartonshire Council is Labour's Councillor Rhondda Geekie and the current Provost is Labour Councillor Alex Hannah. The current deputy-Provost is the Conservative councillor, Billy Hendry.
