A new harbour and one-way traffic on Kempock Street are featured in plans to redevelop central Gourock and its pierhead.
Inverclyde Council is backing the plans drawn up by regeneration company Riverside, which would see a new link road being built – but a bypass has been ruled out as too expensive.
A ‘masterplan’ for the project highlights Gourock’s ‘interesting, historic townscape’, exceptional views and almost unique open air swimming pool.
But it states that these assets are isolated and poorly connected, adding: “The town centre must have a more positive relationship with the river; it requires a new frontage and riverfront esplanade.”
As well as changes to roads and car parks, a ‘high quality public open space’ is proposed for the pierhead.
Full details of the plans are available here, together with an online form for the public to make comments.
