Renfrew Riverside & Scotstoun, Yoker
The idea of Yoker community campus came from local people's
desire to see the old Yoker school redeveloped as the centre of
community regeneration in the area.
It was a core project of the shipbuilding task force initiative
which aims to bring new investment into Scotstoun, Govan and
surrounding communities, following the decline of the the local
shipbuilding industry in the 1990s.
The campus provides a learning centre with offices, training
accommodation, childcare support, an internet centre and café. The
services offered by the campus complement the facilities of Yoker
The first phase of construction, to secure the roof of the
building, was completed in 2003. The final contract for the campus
started in the summer of 2004 and completed in 2006.
2003 - 2006
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.
