Plans for a £50million redevelopment of Clydebank's waterfront area have been given the thumbs-up by residents.
The vision for the major regeneration of Queens Quay includes a superstore, food store, a hotel, new homes and offices, a petrol station, leisure facilities and restaurants and bars.
The works are on derelict land that is the former site of John Brown's shipyard, where the famous liners Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth and QE2 were built.
If approved, the works would link the waterfront to Clydebank's Glasgow Road area, creating a vibrant town centre.
A public consultation has been launched for residents to have their say on the proposals, and so far the reaction has been positive.
The news comes after a series of major articles in the Evening Times highlighting the drive to regenerate the town.
Clydebank Regeneration, the company that owns Queens Quay, and its development partner, the Dawn Group, have lodged a pre-planning application notification with West Dunbartonshire Council for the plans.
Joseph Henry, chairman of Clydebank East Community Council, said: "We have had meetings with the Dawn Group and while we have to know more about exactly what is planned, we are all excited about the proposals so far.
"Clydebank does not really have a town centre at the moment.
"We have a large shopping centre that shuts at about 7pm and that means there really is not a heart to the town as it stands.
"These plans would see the waterfront connected to the Glasgow Road and would give people somewhere to go in the town again.
"It would also bring jobs to the area and we are very interested to see exactly what else is planned."
A spokesman for the partnership of Clydeside Regeneration and the Dawn Group said talks had been held with Clydebank Asbestos Group over the gifting of land on Queens Quay for the planned International Workers Memorial.
In the coming weeks, more people will get the chance to look at the proposals at an exhibition on the Quay site and give their feedback.
At the end of the three-month consultation the partnership will progress to lodging a major planning application with the council.
Steve McConnell, spokesman for the partnership, said: "This is a real prospect for the delivery of the regeneration of Queens Quay and to really take full advantage of Clydebank's stunning waterfront.
"Our mixed use application will fully integrate Queens Quay with the rest of Clydebank town centre. There will be massive knock-on benefits for neighbours, such as Clydebank College, including improved amenities, major road upgrades and significant public realm work around the Titan Crane.
"Crucially for Clydebank and the wider area, this is a £50m investment that complements other regeneration work in the town and will create much-needed jobs.
"We have started our public consultation and look forward to hearing their views."
