Old Kilpatrick to Dumbarton, Dumbarton
The Old Academy Building or Old Burgh Hall as it is also known,
is one of Dumbarton's category A listed buildings of national
architectural and historical significance.
Work began in late 2006, to dismantle the roof and rear wall of
the building both of which had been causing ongoing structural
problems. A supporting facade retention system is now in place.
The redevelopment of the wider site to the east of the building
is also being considered and offers the possibility of providing a
new location for the town's civic and community facilities.
West Dunbartonshire is identifying plans for the building's
reuse. The site has potential as office accommodation.
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
