Changing Waterfront Uses on the River Clyde, Scotland: A Preliminary Surveyby Neil MacCormick, New York State Dep of State, Albany, NY, USA,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Coastal Zone '87
Abstract: The River Clyde in Scotland was renowned for its shipbuilding and shipping facilities. However, dislocations combined with government policy have forced since the early 1960's the gradual abandonment of these traditional waterfront activities in the two study areas: Glasgow; and Greenock and Port Glasgow. Recent major efforts to reuse vacant or underutilized lands and waters are discussed in the paper.
