Renfrew Riverside & Scotstoun, Scotstoun
The new community centre began in response to the demolition of
Victoria Drive Secondary School's annexe in the 1990s. Ever since
the loss of this community asset, local residents and voluntary
organisations have actively campaigned for a new facility to
provide a focal point for local people and act as a catalyst for
local community-based activities.
The new building, operated by the community of Scotstoun, opened
in June 2011. Key features include a main hall, cafe, drop-in /
training space, conference room and offices to hire, outdoor space
and childcare facilities.
Anyone who lives in Scotstoun is eligible to join and
participate in this local co-operative, known as the Heart of
Construction started march 2010; Completion June 2011.
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.
