Clydebank has a population of 30,824 taking in the wards of Clydebank Central and Clydebank Waterfront. It's town centre is a key regeneration site. It was subject to a Design Charrette in February 2015, the purpose of which was to develop a new community-inspired vision for the town.
The charrette report contains a 2025 vision for Clydebank town centre and a series of development, transport and business support actions to achieve this. The Council are progressing the short term actions arising from the charrette. These are contained within the Charrette Action Plan and relate to a number of projects within the town centre including the Play Drome site, the Co-op building, Improved Public Realm along the A814, investigating a BID for Clydebank Business Park and the possibility of a new transport interchange at Chalmers Street.
The priority action from the charrette is creating an enhanced link between the town centre and Clydebank’s other key regeneration site of Queens Quay. This is being taken forward as the Connecting Clydebank project.
Queens Quay (98.84 acres) is one of the most significant regeneration projects in west-central Scotland. It is the already the location for the Clydebank campus of West College Scotland together with offices for West Dunbartonshire Council at Aurora House and other office users at the Titan Enterprise Centre. A new leisure centre for Clydebank is under construction. A masterplan has been produced for the rest of the site which identifies space for a new 80 bed care home, the relocation of Clydebank Health Centre, 1,029 residential, new civic space and a liner park with walking and cycling routes, to be implemented over the next 7 to 12 years.
