Proposed Dumbarton Town Centre Conservation Area - Public Consultation

West Dunbartonshire Council is consulting on designating a Conservation Area for Dumbarton Town Centre.

Dumbarton Town Centre has many buildings of special architectural or historic interest, a medieval High Street layout and strong historical links to the River Leven. However, some areas now require significant improvements.

A Conservation Area would allow the town’s heritage to be recognised and create potential funding opportunities for improvement works.

The Council wants to know your views on the proposed Conservation Area, which is open for public consultation from 28th January to 11th March 2019. No decision will be made until the Council understands what local residents and businesses think.

A drop-in exhibition is being held on Tuesday 19th February 2019 from 4pm-8pm in the Council Offices, 16 Church Street, Dumbarton. At this exhibition Council officers will be on hand to provide further information, and you will able to give us your feedback.
