For a good few years now the former T.A building in Paisley’s High street has been derelict and slowly going into a state of disrepair.. Its very sad to see this building go the way of so many other buildings of such significance not just in the town of Paisley but elsewhere..
I am sure many an x soldier has signed his life away in this building “I know I once did as a 16 year old” and the building was used to great extent by the Territorial Army for so long..
The new owners “no not Renfrewshire Council, but a private owner” should be held account to the future of this building and we should start to raise awareness before its too late.
One of our visitors to the website has even seen demolition vans parked up outside the building, what could be the purpose of this? There also has been numerous fires and police call outs.
Why don’t you get involved and tell us your memories of the building if you have ever used it or what the building should be used for in the future “residential use was one of the proposed planning applications see this reference here, this was for the “Refurbishment of main building & subdivision to form 8 flats; refurbishment of chapel to form 1 house; demolition of rear buildings & erection of 17 new build flats & maisonettes with associated parking and landscaping”.
Please also note that it is a private company who has ownership of the building and for Renfrewshire Council to do a compulsary purchase order a future use for the building would be needed…
IMPORTANT: If you notice any suspicious activity at the building please report it to the Police.
Anyway discuss, discuss, discuss and lets do something to preserve our historical and architecturally stunning buildings.
