Barrhead Town Centre

The Foundry in Barrhead town centre

Barrhead is a former industrial town with a distinct urban character. The main access spine is provided by Main Street. Over recent years, the Barrhead regeneration project has seen significant public sector investment in the town centre which has successfully transformed the north side of Main Street. On the south side of the Main Street, the shopping centre is a busy and popular convenience centre that provides a good range of local shops and services and is important within East Renfrewshire.

Barrhead has seen significant investment by the council in the town centre. The regeneration has over the last 10 years resulted in a rejuvenated town centre with modern facilities, much improved neighbourhoods and latterly, the redevelopment of post-industrial land to provide business space and new jobs. This has resulted in physical improvements, business growth, increased community engagement influencing public spaces and master plans, and improved green space and community assets. The Council has acted as the catalyst for change.
