Help us Save Free Parking for Three Hours in Paisley town centre!
Following a campaign launched by Paisley First in November 2018, a pilot project was set up in the town centre, offering three hours of Free Parking after 10am Mondays to Saturdays.
The campaign came to life following a U-turn on proposed parking charges for Johnstone and Renfrew on the basis that it would be “bad for local businesses”.
As this pilot scheme has been extended during the last few years, there are now six car parks included in the scheme – Hunter Street Upper and Lower, Orchard Street, Weighhouse Close, Oakshaw, School Wynd and both car parks at the Lagoon Leisure Centre.
Following the recent announcement that a review of parking was to be undertaken, we are concerned that Free for Three parking is set to be scrapped.
This will impact our local businesses and our local communities, both already suffering as a result of the cost of living crisis.
Whilst we appreciate there is a push towards active travel, we remain committed to ensuring that Paisley town centre is accessible for all members of the community.
Please give your support and sign our petition to save Free for Three Parking in Paisley town centre.
