£4.7m redevelopment of Gourock Town Centre approved

A £4.7m masterplan to redevelop Gourock Town Centre, designed by a team comprising Cooper Cromar, Hirst landscape Architects and Fairhurst Civil Engineers for Riverside Inverclyde has been given the go ahead by councillors following a lengthy public consultation process.

Described as “the biggest single investment in Gourock for many years”, the facelift will include a new one-way road system, a riverside footway, cycle path and a small boat launch at the pier to access the River Clyde.

Following approval by its planning board, council leader Stephen McCabe said: “This is an important milestone for a project representing the biggest single investment in Gourock for many years.”

As well as the one-way system in Kempock Street and the boat launch facility at Pierhead, the project envisages 400 car parking spaces, a new public space and Kempock Street’s public spaces being redesigned at each end.
The scheme is a partnership between Inverclyde Council and regeneration company Riverside Inverclyde.
