PLANS are progressing for the build of a new activity centre on the banks of Clydebank canal, West Dunbartonshire Council has said.

The local authority said that the facility would allow residents and visitors to take advantage of a range of activities, with the potential to offer bike hire and repair; kayaking and canoeing hire and tuition; a meeting place for clubs and classes, as well as a small kitchen for healthy snacks.

The council confirmed that it is working with a range of groups to deliver the centre including Scottish Canals, Community Links Scotland, Ysortit, Awestruck Academy, Clydebank Housing Association and Centre 81.

Councillor Iain McLaren, convener of infrastructure, regeneration and economic development, said, “The additional footfall the creation of this activity centre will bring to the area, including the town centre, will be of great benefit to local shops and businesses. It will also be brilliant to see residents have the opportunity to make use of their surroundings.”
