The Regeneration Team is particularly focussed on our three town centres of Alexandria, Clydebank and Dumbarton, related waterfront sites and other key regeneration sites, such as the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate and Bowling.
Connecting Clydebank is a transformational project which seeks to revitalise the civic core of Clydebank; forming essential links with the ongoing Queen’s Quay development, the present town centre and the many active and public transport routes into the area. It aims to link different strands of investment to reinforce Clydebank as a destination.
The project originated from a successful Charette process in 2015 (refer Clydebank Charrette Action Plan) and has been progressing in consultation with funding partner Sustrans over the last 2 years following the successful funding award from the Sustrans Community Links Programme.
Initial views on the project were sought from local residents and businesses in December 2016 and a number of specific groups such as the West Dunbartonshire Access Panel were also asked to contribute.
Over the last year, the design has been advanced, taking into account the comments received so far and the results of detailed technical assessments and traffic modelling. A detailed layout has now been produced. This was shared with the community and other interested parties at a Drop-in Consultation on Tuesday 12 September 2017 in Clydebank Town Hall. People were able to find out more about the proposals and comment on the design.
The Connecting Clydebank project relates to the A814 (Glasgow Road/ Dumbarton Road) between Clydebank Library and to the west of the Argyll Road junction. The proposals in the current layout incorporate the following key design elements:
