Development opportunity at Lomondgate Business Park

10 Mar 2011

A major development opportunity at Lomondgate in Dumbarton is currently being promoted by Strathleven Regeneration Company and the Walker Group.

Lomondgate Business Village is a high profile site situated at the entrance to Lomondgate Business Park, immediately adjacent to the A82. The site extends to approximately 2.67 acres (1.08 ha) and lies approximately one mile north west of Dumbarton town centre.  

Planning permission "In Principle" has been granted for The Hub amenity building and outline planning permission has been granted for Class 4 office use on the business park.  Lomondgate Business Village comprises The Hub amenity building which, as currently planned, provides a mixture of retail, crèche and office space, with the land to the west laid out to provide a number of smaller self contained office buildings totalling 16,500 sq ft.  This site forms part of the wider Lomondgate project that includes roadside services, a business park and approximately 330 houses.  

Lomondgate is arguably one of Scotland's most successful regeneration projects with BBC Scotland and Aggreko as anchor occupiers.  Aggreko are currently building a new 185,000 sq ft manufacturing plant and associated offices on part of the site which is due for occupation by the end of this year.  In addition, a new 60 bed Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre Restaurant has recently opened and work is shortly due to start on a Costa Coffee drive thru - their first in Scotland.  In addition, discussions are well advanced with an operator for the petrol filling station and convenience store.  Walker Group has just started on their part of the residential element with the first units being available for occupation from June this year.  Persimmon will shortly embark on their part of the residential development.
