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.
