Renfrewshire Council has developed plans to enhance walking, cycling and public transport connections for residents, businesses and visitors on Causeyside Street. Details of the project were given in an earlier news item.

As part of its engagement with local people, the council created a concept design to visualise the plans and all stakeholders, including ward members, community councils, local partnerships and Paisley-based partners, were asked to take part in a survey. Letters were delivered directly to residents and businesses received an in-person visit. Members of the project team were also available in-person at 5 High Street on various occasions during the engagement period (11 July – 7 August 2022), while the plans were also communicated through the local media and social media.

While a large number of the responses were positive, there were also constructive points raised about how the project could be improved. The council has now modified the project to take account of this feedback. Details can be found here.

All residents and businesses on Causeyside Street will now receive a letter outlining the revised plans and key stakeholders such as bus and taxi providers, Local Partnerships and Community Councils will also be contacted directly. Awareness will also be raised through the local media and through the Council’s social media channels.

You can also visit a local library to see the plans and leave your feedback.

The closing date for any comments on the final designs is Sunday 15 January 2023.
