Land at Southfield Avenue, Port Glasgow

Former Unity Club - For Sale

£95,000, Offers Over

39525 sq ft


The freehold of this rarely available land is available to purchase at Southfield in Port Glasgow. Providing 0.9 acres, the site could be used for residential or commercial development (subject to planning) and sits on the edge of Dubbs Road and Clune Brae.

The land is the site of the former Port Glasgow Unity Club which ran successfully for several decades and is ideally located on the edge of Clune Brae with easy access to the main motorway and forms part of a large residential estate with traditional and new-build homes.

There is currently no planning permission for any specific use of the site, although our client has held discussions with the local authority who are keen to support the future development of the site.

Most recently, the site was used as a car park for the recent social housing developments in and around this part of Port Glasgow.

Industrial property is highly popular in the Inverclyde area and this size of land is rarely available to purchase, making this a great development opportunity for a new owner. 


The subjects are accessed off of Boglestone Roundabout at the top of Clune Brae with easy access to the A8/M8. The subjects are located approximately 10 miles from Glasgow Airport (a 15-minute drive) and 19 miles to Glasgow City Centre (a 25-minute drive).

Port Glasgow’s population is approximately 16,617 and has undergone a regenerative transformation over the past decade to become a vibrant town on the banks of the River Clyde, within the authority of Inverclyde Council.

With a rich heritage within the shipbuilding industry, the town continues to build ships at the nearby Ferguson Shipyard, nationalised by the Scottish Government in 2019.

The town is reaping the benefits of having a large retail park constructed next to this site by Ediston, with tenants including Tesco, M&S, Next, B&Q, B&M, Aldi, and McDonald’s.

Port Glasgow benefits from excellent road and rail links and is accessed via junction 31 of the M8 motorway with direct links to Paisley and Largs via the A8 and A78.

Woodhall train station is also close by and there are regular bus routes connecting to both Glasgow and Greenock. 


All enquiries should be directed to Inverclyde Council. Bowman Rebecchi is delighted to support purchasers with any potential planning and development needs. 


The postcode for the property is PA14 6PR. Access is from Boglestone Roundabout.


The demand to own property in Inverclyde is strong, with any development likely to command a healthy yield.

Demand is high for Industrial sites and land in both Port Glasgow and Inverclyde and it is rare for a piece of land like this to come to market. As a result, we expect to see a high level of interest.


The site is accessible to the public currently. Accompanied viewings can be arranged by appointment with Bowman Rebecchi.
