Big splash as Clyde Waterfront website is relaunched

Online presence is a vital channel for Clyde Waterfront regeneration

26 May 2010

The relaunch of the Clyde Waterfront website is a major step in the drive to support the continuing regeneration of the Clyde. The website provides a vital overview of the development activity in the area, as well as up-to-date news and comment about regeneration.

In addition to a complete redesign and upgrade, we've incorporated exciting new features which will help to make the website even more successful.

The history of each project in pictures

Photography has always been a leading element of this website. Now the new design means the photos can be even more effective in charting the story of new developments through to completion. There are currently around 250 projects in our Projects section, all with a bank of images that can grow as the projects progress.

A timeline to chart the overall progress of regeneration

We've selected some of the significant developments from along both sides of the river and gathered them together in a Timeline that shows the past, the present and the future of regeneration along the river.

Latest News

We are constantly adding regeneration news to the website, and now have hundreds of stories that we've gathered over the last few years. New improved search facilities make it easier to filter these stories and follow the developments that interest you.

Follow us on Twitter

Recently, we've been dipping our toe in the social media pool and with the relaunch, we've now linked our Twitter feed to the website for the first time, with our most recent posts appearing on the home page. For more of our regular Tweets and to follow us on Twitter find us at www.twitter.com/clydewaterfront.

There's more to come

The beauty of the new site is that it is flexible. It can grow with us as the regeneration of Clyde Waterfront continues to drive forward. For now, you can keep on top of the news, seek out expert opinion, find detailed project information about the developments and see the overall progress that we are making towards regeneration. The site will continue to develop, so keep a look out for new features and great new content over the coming months.

Acknowledgments

The new website was developed by web design agency Innovation Digital. The Glasgow-based agency has been proud  to be associated with Clyde Waterfront since building the original website in 2006. This was followed by Clyde Waterfront Education in June 2008 and Clyde Waterfront Heritage in March 2009.  Innovation Digital also provides ongoing services in online marketing and web copywriting to all three sites.  

This new website showcases excellent photography of the waterfront area, along with project imagery.  McAteer Photograph, based in Tradeston, Glasgow has provided images for all three sites since launch.
