Former Playdrome Leisure Centre,  Clydebank
The property comprises a level site totalling approximately 8.58 acres (3.47 hectares), currently occupied by the Playdrome Leisure Centre, along with associated surface car parking.

The site is located in Clydebank town centre and is currently zoned for retail, leisure and commercial use as defined within the West Dunbartonshire Local Plan 2010 Ref policy RET 4 (2).

Outline Planning Consent was granted in 2004 for the site for development of a Class 1 Foodstore of 84,000 sq ft (7,804 sq m); Retail units extending to 2,500 sq ft (232 sq m); petrol filling station and associated car parking. This planning consent has now lapsed and any proposals for the site will require a new, separate planning application.

Preferred uses envisaged for the site include Retail, Leisure, Restaurant, Drive Thru and other commercial uses complementary to the existing provision.

West Dunbartonshire Council actively discourage any proposals which are residential-led in terms of use, however, a smaller complementary housing element may be considered as part of a wider commercial-led development proposal. Any proposed development should allow for continuing pedestrian and vehicular access, during and after construction to Abbotsford Church, Dalmuir Credit Union, 3 Queens Square, and to the service yards which give access to the rear of the Clydebank Co-operative building and the rear of the
existing Clyde Shopping Centre units on Sylvania Way South, on the western boundary of the site.

Continued service access from Chalmers Street for existing and new retail interests would be acceptable, although it is envisaged that shopper vehicular access to the new development will be taken from Argyll Road.

Should interested parties require further Planning information on the site, they should satisfy themselves in discussion with the Development Management team at West Dunbartonshire Council. Contact details are available through the selling agents.
The offer site is owned by West Dunbartonshire Council and is located within Clydebank Town Centre, adjacent to the existing Clyde Shopping Centre.

The property is bounded to the east by Argyll Road, to the south by Chalmers Street and to the north by the Forth & Clyde Canal. The western boundary is adjacent to the rear of the existing retail activity at the southern end of the Clyde Shopping Centre.

Abbotsford Road bisects part of the western end of the site on a north/ south axis.

The property is shown on the location plans. The boundaries shown are indicative only and are subject to final confirmation with the preferred bidder.
