Renfrewshire Council

City Deal Public Engagement (May 2016 @ Intu)

Public Exhibitions (Phase 3)

Another opportunity for your input on major infrastructure projects.

Proposal of Application Notices (PAN) for works including new bridges across the Clyde and White Cart were submitted on Friday 17 March, starting the statutory planning procedures for two of Renfrewshire's City Deal projects. Copies of these notices can be found in the related documents section of this page.

This began a period of consultation, during which events were held to get stakeholders' views, allowing the plans to be finalised. A full planning application will then be submitted later this year. Sign up to our mailing list to be kept informed of these and other future key updates on our City Deal projects. An application is also scheduled to be submitted to Marine Scotland in June 2017 in respect to these two projects (see Marine Licence Notices in related documents section of this page).

This third phase of engagement follows previous (non statutory) engagement events held in May/June and December of 2016 which were held to provide information on the options being considered (May/June) and also the selected options being progressed (December) as part of the project appraisal and design process.

You can view the information displayed at these events, including leaflets and boards from the 'related documents' section of this page. The following video shows how the new infrastructure and potential future developments could look;

The two projects which are being consulted on are:

The Clyde Waterfront and Renfrew Riverside (CWRR): comprises a new 'opening' bridge across the Clyde linking the communities of Renfrew, Yoker and Clydebank. Proposals also include the Renfrew Northern Development Road and new cycle routes aimed at providing improved access to development opportunities, employment, education, health and leisure locations.

The Glasgow Airport Investment Area (GAIA): comprises the realignment of Abbotsinch Road to facilitate new development opportunities and business growth associated with the airport. It also provides new and improved connections between the Westway, Inchinnan and Airport Business Parks with the provision of a new bridge across the White Cart at Wright Street and new off-road cycling infrastructure.

These events will include four days of public exhibitions at which people will be able to discuss the plans with members of the project team;

Renfrew Town HallMonday 8 May 11am to 7pm
Paisley Town HallTuesday 9 May 11am to 7pm
Clydebank Town HallWednesday 10 May 11am to 7pm
Yoker Community CampusThursday 11 May 11am to 7pm

Views gathered from the events will be used to inform the applications for Planning and the applications for Marine Licences to be made in June 2017.

If you didn't make it along to one of the events, you can still view the information displayed including leaflets and boards from the 'related documents' section of this page. A video showing how the new infrastructure and potential future developments could look can also be found at the top of this page.
