The Council is progressing with plans to develop the currently inaccessible and contaminated former St Eunan’s Primary School site in Clydebank. Following public consultation events in 2016 a contractor (Robertson Construction Group) has been appointed to cap the existing contamination and transform the site into an attractive and exciting new Community Green Space. Planning consent was granted in March 2018 and following some further site investigations works, construction is planned to commence on site in Spring 2019.
The project will deliver new biodiversity areas, raised bed allotments, recreational areas for children, outdoor exercise equipment, outdoor education areas and interpretation about the heritage of Clydebank. In addition open pathways will be created through the site, providing accessible connections for pedestrians and cyclists between the town centre to the south and residential areas to the north of the site. This new Community Green Space will improve opportunities for contact with nature and for physical activity for local children and adults. Having good quality green infrastructure near where we live and work will improve our physical and mental health and well-being. The approved layout is available for download below.
The project is delivered in partnership with the Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) who awarded up to £620,000 from its Green Infrastructure Fund to help transform the site of the former St Eunan’s Primary School into a community green space area. West Dunbartonshire Council had already approved funding of £900,000 for the project and is now working together with SNH to develop and deliver this new Community Green Space.
