The results of a public consultation for the Dumbarton town centre masterplan project revealed that many people view the quayside as an  important public space but are discouraged from using it because of its appearance.

Improvements are now underway to replace the existing bins and benches, improve visibility through works to trees and introducing amenity lighting, minor improvements to hard surfaces, and subject to funding, the introduction of interpretative signage.
