What is www.Paisley2020.org?
As Paisley Buddies who are proud of their town, we wanted to get more involved in the development and improvements proposed by the Paisley Vision Board.
We spoke to a number of people who shared our enthusiasm and discovered not much was known about the Board, or the projects being worked on. There was frustration with the way our town centre appeared, and the apparent lack of action. Since researching information for this website, we have learned this is definitely not the case, but like all large projects, it takes time for change to happen. It was felt the workings of the Paisley Vision Board were not obvious, and positive changes happening in the town centre were not being duly credited to the Board.
It is hoped this site will highlight some of the work being carried out by the Board, highlight the plans still to be actioned, and highlight issues which may appear dormant, but have probably being investigated. We also want to focus the enthusiasm Paisley Buddies have for town.
After Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee, Paisley is the largest population centre in Scotland. We have a larger population that the cities of Inverness, Perth or Stirling, so we have an importance to be recognised. We are home to Scotland's largest airport and largest university. We have a proud industrial and cultural heritage, and a love for our town unequalled anywhere.
We want to generate, maintain and share civic pride in Paisley.
