Regeneration and renewal plans for Springbank and Mossvale

Plans for regenerating properties in the Springbank/Mossvale area of Paisley

Regeneration and renewal proposal

Springbank/Mossvale is one of the eight areas covered by our Housing-led Renewal and Regeneration Programme. You can see a map showing which addresses are covered by the programme below:

The Springbank/Mossvale area will be transformed with two phases of new-build council housing on the cleared sites of homes due to be demolished. The first phase will see  the following blocks demolished and replaced by new-builds:

  • 47-53 Springbank Road;
  • 1-19, 2-20 and 22-48 Mossvale Square;
  • 2-22 Mossvale Street.

The second phase will see the demolition and replacement of:

  • 55-61, 63-69 and 71-77 Springbank Road;
  • 6-20 Russell Street.

Council tenants who are being rehoused will have the right to be considered for the new-build homes.

The following blocks will be retained and improved, subject to owner agreement:

  • 1-19 Russell Street;
  • 24-38, 40-52, 54-66, 31-35 and 37-55 Mossvale Street.

This work will make those homes more energy-efficient. This will in most cases include:

  • new roofs, including new roof trims, gutters and rainwater pipes, and the addition of solar panels;
  • external wall insulation;
  • new close doors, repainted closes and repairs to stair treads;
  • new TV aerials;
  • (in some cases) new windows;

There will also be improvements to outdoor and common areas such as closes, back courts, bin stores and recycling facilities.

    Next steps and timeline

    The estimated programme of works is as follows:

    • 2024 - the first phase of demolition starts.
    • 2025 - work starts to improve all properties being retained (as described above). We expect it will take around two years to complete this;
    • 2026 - construction starts on the first phase of new-build council homes. This should take around 18 months;
    • 2028 - the second phase of demolition starts.
    • 2030 - the second phase of new-builds starts. This should take around 18 months;
    • 2031 - we expect all work to be complete.

    Please note, as this is a long-term project, the timelines could be liable to change.

    Throughout this time, we will be working with council tenants in blocks proposed for demolition to help them find another home elsewhere, and with the owners of those properties to help bring them into council ownership.

    We will also be working with all residents over the years ahead on a neighbourhood plan for the area, to capture your views on the issues affecting the wider area, what you would like to see changed or improved, and how we and our partners can work together to deliver on that.

    If you would like to be involved in this, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact the team via the details below.
