£60k Greenock Cut improvement works

IMPROVEMENTS to the Greenock Cut Visitor Centre are continuing with work underway to refurbish the public toilets.

The facilities are now closed for around six weeks for upgrades.

Temporary toilets have been brought in while the work takes place.

The project is expected to cost in the region of £60,000.

It is part of Inverclyde Council’s ongoing investment in the two local Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park sites at The Cut and Lunderston Bay.

Councillor Michael McCormick, Inverclyde Council’s convener of environment and regeneration, said: “Since taking over the responsibility of our two Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park sites, the council immediately began making improvements.

“We’ve already seen a fantastic new playpark installed at Lunderston Bay and cosmetic and signage works carried out at The Cut to make it more appealing to visitors.

“One of the key priorities was to refurbish the toilets at the Cornalees visitor centre and I’m pleased that work is now underway.

“These two magnificent outdoor areas at the Greenock Cut and Lunderston Bay are jewels in the crown of Inverclyde and investing in improvements and maintenance of these sites will ensure locals and visitors alike can continue to visit the area and discover what Inverclyde has to offer.” 

The toilets closed on Monday 30 January 2023 and the refurbishment work due to take around six weeks.

Inverclyde Council earmarked £540k for a package of improvements at Lunderston Bay and Greenock Cut shortly after taking over responsibility of the sites in 2021.

Following a reorganisation of the regional park, which used to be jointly controlled by neighbouring local authorities, the Inverclyde parts and local staff, including the rangers, transferred to the council.

In October 2022, a new £200k playpark opened at Lunderston Bay with other improvement works ongoing there and at The Cut.
