For Sale : UNDER OFFER Residential Development Opportunity - Levenbank, Jamestown

Levenbank, Jamestown, G83 8BZ


UNDER OFFER West Dunbartonshire Council are pleased to offer for sale the heritable interest in this residential development site located within the Levenbank area of Jamestown.



Jamestown is a small town situated between Bonhill and Balloch and approximately 1 mile from the A82 (Glasgow - Inverness trunk road) which gives access to the M8 motorway, via the Erskine Bridge (6 miles), Glasgow city centre (18 miles), Glasgow International Airport (12 miles) and Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park (2 miles).


The property for sale comprises a largely regular shaped level site situated to the east side of the A813, the main road between Bonhill and Jamestown. The site is currently overgrown with rough grassland and vegetation.  The site is bounded on the north by Levenbank Road which provides access to Jamestown Industrial
Estate; to the east by farmland; to the south by Milton Loan - a pocket of private housing; and to the west by a relatively modern residential development: Levenbank Terrace.

The surrounding area contains a mix of residential and industrial properties. Access to the site will be from Levenbank Road.

Site Area

We calculate the site area extends to 7.07 acres (2.86 hectares) or thereby.
The approximate site boundaries are shown on the attached plan.


The site is allocated as being potentially suitable for Residential Development in the West Dunbartonshire Council Local Plan Ref H2 (30). The land to the north east of the site Ref H2 (29), which is privately owned, is also identified as a potential residential development opportunity and the Planners would ideally like the two sites to connect and relate to each other once developed.
