Free for Three Public Survey

In late 2018, Paisley First launched a campaign calling on Renfrewshire Council to offer three hours of free parking within Paisley town centre Mondays to Fridays. As a result, a  Free for Three pilot project is now in place until January 2020.

The pilot scheme is operational in six car parks -  Hunter Street Upper, Hunter Street Lower, Oakshaw, Orchard Street, School Wynd and Weighhouse Close.

Whilst not part of our Free for Three Campaign, Renfrewshire Council has decided that charges are being reintroduced on a Saturday in all council-owned car parks, apart from the six pilot car parks which will still offer the first three hours free, as analysis has shown a lack of availability of spaces in the town centre with many people using it as a park and ride facility.

The on street parking areas that were free on Saturdays are still free, you can also get 3 hours free in the pilot scheme car parks, and the large car park at the council's HQ is still free all day on a Saturday too.

The pilot scheme is scheduled to run for six months and feedback will be crucial to our campaign to have Free for Three rolled out across the town centre on a permanent basis. 

If we can achieve this, then visitors to the town will be entitled to three hours free parking Monday – Saturday in all council owned car parks, helping to put the town centre businesses on a level playing field with other Renfrewshire town centres.
