Clydebank & Erskine, Clydebank Town Centre


This project has been undertaken by Clydebank Rebuilt on behalf of West Dunbartonshire Council and is funded through the Scottish Government's Town Centre Regeneration Fund. It has involved the environmental upgrading of the south bank of the canal within the town centre. It complements the award-wining improvements on the north canal bank. Works are focussing on the transformation of Three Queens Square as an attractive, modern civic and event space. The bandstand has been refurbished and relocated within the square. In addition, an informal play area, inspired by the town's shipbuilding heritage, has been created adjacent to Abbotsford Church while an orchard-style space is located just west of Sylvania Way South.

West Dunbartonshire Council and Clydebank Re-built worked together to deliver the award winning landscape on the north bank and now the opposite bank has received  the same treatment.

Clydebank re-built financed the development phase of the project and produced the design for the successful application and is now managing the delivery of the project on behalf of the Council.

Current status:

The Scottish Government have provided a grant of £1.825m for the refurbishment of the South Canal Bank in Clydebank. The work is now complete.
