Dumbarton residents are being encouraged to have their say in the future plans for the town’s Artizan Centre as the council moves to regenerate the site.

Towards the end of 2021, West Dunbartonshire Council bought the shopping centre for £1.7m from Mars Real Estate Investment BV in a bid to transform the area.

Consideration is now being given to how the area can be enhanced to create a better link to the town centre, encouraging future investment on the High Street while attracting residents and visitors to the centre.

A consultation event will take place on Thursday, April 7, within Auntie’s Tea Room in the centre.

Officers will be on hand between 10am and 4pm to listen to feedback and give information on potential development opportunities.

Peter Hessett, chief officer for regulatory and regeneration, said: “We really value the input our residents give us, and encourage them to come along and let us know how they use the area, and what changes they would like to see.

“We want to make these enhancements work for our residents and will work with them closely as the project progresses.”
