New West Dunbartonshire workshops approved

volie_workshops_imageNew workshop premises at the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate have been given the green light after West Dunbartonshire Council granted planning permission for the development.

Building work on the £1.8m project, which will provide 13 new workshop units with 35 parking spaces, is due to begin on site in March 2015. The units will range from approximately 500-1000 square feet in size and are due to be completed by August 2015.

The project is being developed by West Dunbartonshire Council’s development partner, hub West Scotland, and the main contractor for the project is Heron Bros.

Councillor Lawrence O’Neill, convener of the council’s planning committee, said: “This project is another example of the Council’s commitment to regeneration in West Dunbartonshire. These new workshops will meet the clear demand for new workshop space in the Dumbarton and Vale of Leven area. They will be ideal for businesses that are just starting out, or for existing businesses to expand.”

Councillor Douglas McAllister, depute convener of planning, added: “This is great news for the local business community. This project will also transform an area of land which is currently vacant and derelict, and give it a new lease of life. I look forward to seeing local businesses move into these new workshops once they are completed next year.”
