Planning sought for transformation of former Johntone mill
September 16 2016
Two retail warehouses and a drive through restaurant are envisaged in the first phase of work at the former Paton's Mill with the potential to include a restaurant and a riverside trail. Designed by Stallan-Brand these interventions will adopt a dark grey pallete with entrances delineated by wood detailing.
Claire Donaldson of 4th Consulting said: “The site has been in a distressed state for many years and the development masterplan will transform this gateway site into Johnstone.
“By opening up of the woodland area, enabling enable the history of the site to be preserved with information boards detailing the story of the mills, it will become an attractive stop off point for visitors and provides a short walkway into the town.
“We are delighted to be bringing an unoccupied site on this scale back into use and its redevelopment can only add to the local economy and we hope this will be catalyst for further regeneration in the Johnstone area.”
Demolition could commence early next year with completion anticipated by September 2018.
