LIVEinballoch_motif (2)LIVE in Balloch is an exciting new initiative which will help shape the future of Balloch, and we want you to get involved.

In February and March, we worked with West Dunbartonshire Council and Scottish Enterprise to run a design ‘charrette’ (a series of intensive workshops that get local people involved in the design of their community).

The aim of the ‘charrette’ was to involve people like you who live, work, visit and invest in the area in planning what future development in Balloch might look like. Giving you the opportunity to put forward ideas and suggestions on how to improve the village and benefit from its status as a visitor attraction.

Where are we now?

The first output of this charrette is this report,  which identifies 5 key projects:

  1. Balloch Castle and Country Park
  2. West Riverside
  3. Parking Strategy
  4. Station Square
  5. Events/Activity Strategy

This report provides a template for local stakeholders to take forward a package of improvements to transform Balloch and deliver the vision outlined – creating a well-connected, active and attractive place that is enjoyable to spend time in for visitors and locals alike.
