What Does the Future Hold for Govan Graving Docks?

Summer 2018: The Clyde Docks Preservation Initiative (CDPI) would like to acknowledge the immense support that our campaign to save Govan’s historic graving docks has received since it started with only a small petition in 2014.

With the planning decision imminent and exciting new proposals from Ferguson Marine to bring Govan Graving Docks back into use for ship repair, CDPI have handed over our direct role relating to Govan Graving Docks to the Govan Docks Regeneration Trust charity.
