Rashielee Quay

Renfrewshire Council are currently producing a masterplan for Erskine town centre, to support its role as a local service centre and provide a framework for future development to serve the local population. The masterplan has identified Rashielee Quay, an area of existing greenspace, as a location in which improvements could be considered.

Clydebank & Erskine, Erskine


Rashielee Quay represents an area of greenspace with excellent potential for improvement. Erskine town centre remains a popular destination for local residents including families. Rashielee Quay incorporates the Riverside Walkway and is adjacent to Newshot Island Nature Reserve. The proposals for the area combine more formal greenspace close to the town centre with informal natural greenspace proposals closer to Newshot Island.

Erskine is characterised by Radburn housing estates developed in the 1960's and 70's. The layout of these neighbourhoods tends to be internal looking, often failing to overlook adjacent attractive natural assets. Equally these estates tend to separate pedestrian and vehicle movements with major road infrastructure, limiting connectivity. Despite this, Erskine town is well linked internally by open space and local green corridors.
