A Revised Strategy for Dumbarton Town Centre and Waterfront was produced in 2014 to help guide future projects and development. It acknowledged Dumbarton’s enormous potential for regeneration and the opportunity for the town centre and its waterfront to connect and interact with each other. It included 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.

Over the last 10 years or so, the strategy has been used as a tool to help steer many new projects such as the new Council offices at 16 Church Street, the Waterfront Path, Connecting Dumbarton and Glencairn House and maximise the development opportunities of vacant and derelict sites. It remains relevant to the continued regeneration of Dumbarton.
