City Deal Projects

West Dunbartonshire’s Exxon project totals £34 million investment.

Exxon Site Development

West Dunbartonshire Council’s ambitious proposals to create a major industrial and commercial development in Bowling on the site of the former ExxonMobil terminal are progressing well.
The project will see the area transformed into a mixed-use development, comprising storage, distribution, industrial, business and office space.
The project will also include a number of road improvements connecting to the site, including the addition of a new 1.95km relief road through West Dunbartonshire. Of the 150 acre site, just 47 acres is planned to be developed, with the remained used for green network and green infrastructure enhancements which include a waterfront pedestrian and cycle path.In addition, a heritage area has been identified around listed structure Dunglass Castle.
When complete, it is expected the project will provide up to 980 full time jobs as well as an additional 670 jobs during the construction stage. It is expected to bring £32.2 million of additional private investment, and £230.2 million net additional GVA by 2035.
