More Garden Offices Articles A land reclamation project in Scotland has offered scope for the area to be improved through the addition of garden buildings like garden offices or sheds.
The site in Paisley is to be turned into 15 new gardening plots which, it is hoped, will rejuvenate an area "where grey tenements once stood", the Paisley Daily Express reported.
According to the news source, the Sutherland Street project is being led by the local community council and Paisley's West End Allotment Association, who have responded to an offer from Renfrewshire Council to make use of two demolition sites.
It was also revealed that a public meeting has already been held to discuss the plans, with a number of people expressing interest in owning and running an allotment.
John Wilby, chairman of Paisley West & Central Community Council, said: "While the allotment association has a waiting list and has agreed to lead the project, we are keen to engage local residents, including young people, as part of the West End regeneration programme."
