The seafront Clock Tower in Helensburgh is set to become a coffee shop – despite objections from some neighbours.
Plans for the conversion of the building, on the corner Sinclair Street and East Clyde Street, were initially unveiled by the owners of the town’s Tower Digital Arts Centre in June 2020.
But they were withdrawn and a revised application submitted after Helensburgh Community Council, while supportive of the idea in principle, said more detail was needed.
The new application was approved by Argyll and Bute Council planning officers on Wednesday, February 17 despite five objections, all of them from residents of Tower Place.
