West Dunbartonshire Council produced a Revised Strategy for Dumbarton Town Centre and Waterfront in 2014 which consolidates the Town Centre Masterplan from 2008 and Waterfront Design Framework from 2004 into a single usable strategy. This will be used by WDC and its regeneration partners to guide future projects and development over the next 5-10 years.
Dumbarton has enormous potential for development and activity which allows the town centre and waterfront to connect and interact with each other and with other adjoining land uses. The revised strategy will be used to guide and stimulate the regeneration of Dumbarton town centre and its waterfront. It is a tool to transform the image and appeal of the town, unlock its waterfront potential and maximise the development opportunities of the vacant and derelict sites.
The Strategy represents a series of interlinked ambitious, but deliverable projects that aim to make Dumbarton town centre and its waterfront a more attractive place - socially, economically and visually. It also includes design guidance for new development proposals. It has been produced with input from local businesses, community groups and public organisations and the Council hopes the Strategy will reflect aspirations for the town's future.
