City Deal Masterplan Submitted for Planning

Two elements of our infrastructure led City Deal masterplan for Renfrewshire Council have been submitted for planning.

It is a major step forward for both Clyde Waterfront & Renfrew Riverside (CWRR) and Glasgow Airport Investment Area (GAIA)  and follows extensive community consultation which found strong public support for the projects.

The £90.7million CWRR project aims to regenerate the Clyde Waterfront as an attractive area supporting residential, industrial, business, retail and leisure opportunities.

It includes construction of the only opening road bridge across the River Clyde and new roads and cycle routes to better link the communities of Renfrew with Yoker and Clydebank.

The £39.1million GAIA project would greatly improve transport connections across the region and create a world class business and commercial location in the heart of Renfrewshire, connected by air, sea and land.

If approved, work on both projects is expected to start on site in 2018 with construction completed in 2020.

The projects are funded through the £1.13billion Glasgow City Region City Deal, an agreement between the UK Government, Scottish Government and eight local authorities across the Glasgow City Region to deliver improved infrastructure, create new jobs, tackle unemployment and drive innovation and growth.
