Renfrewshire Council

Please buy a ticket and display in clearly in your windscreen.

The parking pilot remains in place in Paisley and drivers will continue to receive their first three hours of parking for free in six of our council-run car parks. You must still obtain a ticket. A reminder of the pilot can be found here - Paisley parking pilot.

From 1 December 2020 until 3 January 2020, all council-owned car parks in Paisley town centre will be free.

This supersedes the three hours free parking pilot, although this will return from 4 January.

On-street parking will still be charged during these times.
