Took a walk through Dumbarton recently and noticed the red brick distillery on the riverside near the castle was missing a few buildings. There's a fair few bites out of the main building as well.
Anyone know more? Is any of it being kept, or is it all on the way out?
Going on the premise that artists impressions always look better than the actual building, it looks like Dumbarton is going to have an absolute eye sore on it's hand. I mean even the picture looks dreadful!
My name is Bill Johnston and I work for Carvill (Scotland) Ltd. We are a residential development company and we have recently submitted a planning application to develop the former Allied Distillers Site in Dumbarton. I was very interested to note that a forum was opened on your website within a few days (hours even!!!) of our submission and that it generated quite a bit of interest.
Currently, we are involved in some public consultation for this project and I would like to enquire whether you would permit us to use your forums for some additional feedback.
The main thrust of the consultation is a public display running on the 4th, 5th & 6th of August where people can come along and see a 3D model of the project together with a computer generated fly through, various plans, etc as well as discuss the proposal with representatives from Carvill and their Design Team.
In the lead up to these dates we have issued nearly 9000 leaflets inviting Dumbarton residents along as well as displaying posters and placing ads in the local newspapers. We have also provided some additional info on the web at http://www.dumbartonharbour.co.uk
The display is being held at the Riverside Parish Church Hall, Castle Street, Dumbarton.
If you think that this would be appropriate I would be delighted if you could post this message up for your users and invite them to comment on the scheme, particularly those who are interested in the regeneration of Dumbarton Town Centre.
