West Dunbartonshire's Exxon project totals £28 million investment
Exxon Site Development Project
The former Exxon site in Bowling is 81 acres and the Council is currently in negotiations to acquire the site.
The total cost of the project, which would provide major industrial and commercial development and create a road to provide an alternative route in and out of West Dunbartonshire, is almost £28m.
West Dunbartonshire's Strategic Business Case for the Exxon project shows that the Council would contribute £3.8m to the overall project cost, with the remainder being funded by grants from the UK and Scottish Governments.
The first major milestone is anticipated to be a purchase agreement for the site will be provided from Exxon by November 2016, with any conditions and a purchase price included. The Council would then have six months to negotiate an agreement.
If this was successful then it is hoped that a masterplan for the site would be submitted for Planning permission by October 2017, with work on site then scheduled to start at the beginning of 2020.
