Paisley Town Centre Conservation Area

Paisley Town Centre Conservation Area covers most of Paisley town centre, and includes the ancient abbey and Victorian Clark town hall on the east bank of the White Cart Water.

On the west bank, the High Street and Oakshaw hill are crowned with five skyline landmarks, including the great Coats Memorial Church and domed John Neilson Institution.

The Cross and Oakshaw were designated as separate conservation areas in 1975 and combined, extended and classed as 'outstanding' in 1981. This conservation area was extended and renamed Paisley Town Centre Conservation Area in 2008. The area has 120 listed buildings, including no less than 14 which are category A.  The boundary of the Paisley Town Centre Conservation Area can be viewed on the interactive map under the related link section on this page.
