THE search has started for developers to continue the regeneration of a Paisley community.
The Cart Corridor Joint Venture Company said its plans are starting to gain momentum in the Shortroods area with new businesses and jobs already established. The project now enters a new phase with a drive to find hunt developers, investors and occupiers. Plans to market the second phase to prospective occupiers is now getting under way after planning permission in principle was granted for a significant mixed use scheme.
The Cart Corridor company is a partnership of Renfrewshire Council, Scottish Enterprise and Royal Bank of Scotland. The project is being delivered by business park developer Goodman which manages the town’s Westpoint Business Park. The project is now looking to attract a mix of businesses for the next phase of development.
Organisations which have moved to the park include civil engineering contractor Raynesway Construction.
Goodman is now seeking expressions of interest after planning permission for projects including a hotel, family pub/restaurant, fast food outlets, and trade counters.
More than 200 homes have been built in the area and there other residential sites totalling 8.5 acres for private and social housing.
Acting on behalf of Cart Corridor, Goodman is seeking expressions of interest from housing developers.
