Renfrew Riverside & Scotstoun, Braehead
Plans are being developed for the expansion of Braehead Shopping
Centre. The £200m project will not only see new shops, but
entertainment space, a hotel and landscaped walkways with
improved access to the river.
The expansion would include a new integrated transport
interchange for buses and to link in with the new Fastlink service,
which will extend from the south side of Glasgow to Braehead and
Renfrew. There are also plans for a department store, a
hotel, cafes, restaurants and a new arena for sports, concerts and
exhibitions, and a new civic square.
It is hoped that this project will generate up to
2,000 jobs in the construction sector, this will include
apprenticeships for young people, and more than 3,000 jobs in
retail and leisure once the extension is complete. A Job Shop
will be set up on site to enable as many local people as possible
to benefit from these jobs being created.
Full Planning application lodged with Renfrewshire
Council January 2013.
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.
