Funding for Building Repair

Through Paisley’s Townscape Heritage and Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (TH.CARS2) grants are available for building repair works, improvements to traditional shop fronts and small scale works to historic buildings within the TH.CARS2 boundary. The scheme was launched in February 2017 and will contribute to the regeneration of Paisley’s heritage until 2022. With the scheme now approaching its final year, limited funding may be available for new large scale projects that can be delivered within the timeframe of the TH.CARS2.  Applications for smaller projects, such as window refurbishment and reinstatement of architectural detail, are welcomed and further information can be obtained by contacting the Project Team.

As TH.CARS2 is a heritage-led grants programme all materials, repairs and techniques must be traditional and in keeping with the age and construction of the property. Grants are available for up to 80% of the cost of eligible building repair work and up to 90% of the cost of eligible shopfront repairs. Grants are awarded in accordance with the terms and conditions of Renfrewshire Council, Historic Environment Scotland and National Lottery Heritage Fund.

I love the fabulous architecture - Paisley Abbey, Coats Memorial and the town hall, all within walking distance.

Anything that will increase the footfall in Paisley is going to benefit all the businesses. The improvement to shopfronts would be good too.

If it’s anything like the improvement they made to Causeyside Street, it will be a great thing for Paisley. It’s long overdue now, but it’s happening and the benefits will be great.
