The development of a major industrial and commercial development in Bowling, Dunbartonshire, as the planning has been granted. The £34m Glasgow City Region City Deal project will see the former ExxonMobil site transformed into a mixed-use development.
The new development will include distribution, storage, industrial, business and office space. The distribution and storage is planned to be located in the Westfield areas, the industrial development in Eastfield, and business in Centrefield.
The project is expected to provide up to 980 full-time jobs when complete and generate 670 jobs during the construction. Granting of the application by the council’s planning committee follows an agreement reached with ExxonMobil last October.
The agreement reveals that the site will be remediated and then transferred to the Council. ExxonMobil is preparing extensive remediation in the 150-acre site, and the council will start work when this is complete.
