The details and schedule of the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS) South Compulsory Purchase Order 2023 by Renfrewshire Council.

Renfrewshire Council plans to use its powers under the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 and the Acquisition of Land (Authorisation Procedure) (Scotland) Act 1947 to make a Compulsory Purchase Order.

This is for the purpose of:

  • the construction of a new North to South route linking Paisley town centre, including Paisley Gilmour Street Station, via a new road bridge across the White Cart river at Harbour Road, to Glasgow Airport and the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS)
  • the construction of a new East-West route linking Renfrew Road, Paisley, to the new North-South route and improving connectivity for the Shortroods and Gallowhill areas
  • upgrades to existing roads Abercorn Street and Inchinnan Road that form part of the new North-South route
  • improved facilities for public transport, cyclists and pedestrians throughout the works from Paisley Gilmour Street Station to Abbotsinch Road.

The Order has been submitted to Scottish Ministers and will only come into operation if approved.
