The Regeneration Team is particularly focussed on our three town centres of Alexandria, Clydebank and Dumbarton, related waterfront sites and other key regeneration sites, such as the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate and Bowling.
Bowling is a village lying between the A82 and the River Clyde. The Forth and Clyde Canal enters the Clyde from Bowling Basin, to the west of which is Bowling Harbour and then the former Esso Terminal. Any development should recognise the nature conservation value of the Inner Clyde Special Protection Area and take cognisance of the historic value of the B-Listed Dunglass Castle.
