What is CDPI?

CDPI is a research, networking and advocacy social enterprise concerned with the protection and promotion of maritime heritage along the River and Firth of Clyde.

We see heritage in a much broader context than history and museums, which are only a part of the picture. Heritage is a legacy from past traditions as well as what we create now and pass on to future generations. This means looking at issues of contemporary and emergent culture, activity, innovation, new technology and sustainable development.

Our bespoke information research and photography services are developed with maritime, marine and environmental related organisations and community groups in the Clyde region in mind.

We offer discounted rates for charities and community groups.

Any profits we make are reinvested in our mission to promote the living maritime heritage of the Clyde region.

Govan Graving Docks

What does the future hold for Govan's iconic A-listed dry docks now that Glasgow City Council have rejected developers' proposals to turn them into private housing?

Find out more about Govan Docks Regeneration Trust - the charity that aims to become the long-term steward of the public areas of the graving dock site.

The charity is developing a broad conversation, with the local community and maritime/heritage interest communities, to develop a shared ambition for the future of the historic docks.
