The £1.13bn City Deal will bring tens of thousands of jobs to the Glasgow City Region through 20 infrastructure projects. The City Deal will drive innovation and growth through the support of key sectors such as life sciences and address challenges in the region's labour market. In West Dunbartonshire, our City Deal project will see the former Exxon Mobil site in Bowling transformed into a mixed used development, which includes the addition of new green spaces, a link road and public waterfront access.

Exxon Project 

West Dunbartonshire Council’s ambitious proposals to create of a major industrial and commercial development in Bowling on the site of the former ExxonMobil terminal are progressing well.

The £34million project will see the area transformed into a mixed-use development, comprising storage, distribution, industrial, business and office space.

The project will also include a number of road improvements connecting to the site, including the addition of a new 1.95km relief road through West Dunbartonshire.

Of the 150 acre site, just 47 acres is planned to be developed, with the remained used for green network and green infrastructure enhancements which include a waterfront pedestrian and cycle path.

In addition, a heritage area has been identified around listed structure Dunglass Castle.

When complete, it is expected the project will provide up to 980 full time jobs as well as an additional 670 jobs during the construction stage.

It is expected to bring £32.2m of additional private investment, and £230.2m net additional GVA by 2035.
