The Helensburgh and Lomond Area Committee will discuss the naming of the new East Clyde Street building in Helensburgh at their meeting on 13 October.

A list of 29 names suggested by members of the local community will be discussed, with members being invited to make a recommendation to the Provost, Councillor Len Scoullar.  As the naming of the building is a civic matter, the final decision will be made by the Provost.

Area Committee members will be invited to suggest one name, or names for the three individual parts of the building.

In response to continuing public interest in the council’s new offices at East Clyde Street,and in consultation with the Provost Councillor Len Scoullar, Depute Leader Councillor Ellen Morton and Area Committee Chair Councillor Gary Mulvaney, ideas were sought for names for the building from the community.

The communities of Helensburgh and Lomond were consulted in the development of this major new building which will provide a one–stop shop for key council services, community spaces and marriage suite.

Agreeing a name has further involved the community in the development   of the building which has attracted a large amount of interest.
