Views sought on homes plan at Ayrshire hospital site

Residents and interested parties are being invited to have their say on North Ayrshire’s largest Council house development in decades.

A consultation has been launched for the proposals to construct over 200 new modern and energy-efficient council homes at the Ayrshire Central site in Irvine.

You can view and comment on the plans online here until Friday 16 June 2023. The council is also holding a local, in-person event on Tuesday 6 June 2023, 4pm – 6pm at Castlepark Community Centre.

The documents have been prepared to give people a chance to view the revised draft plans and review the feedback from the initial draft plans consultation event which took place towards the end of last year.

The proposals will see 202 properties developed on the site of the former maternity unit with a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes.

The development will include a mix of general needs properties along with homes for wheelchair users and amenity bungalows to meet a wide range of residents’ needs.

Councillor Tony Gurney, cabinet member for place at North Ayrshire Council, said: “The consultation process is always vital but especially in major-scale developments like this. We would urge people to please have a look at the revised plans and provide any feedback they may have.

“We have committed to building 1,625 new homes across North Ayrshire by 2028, which is one of the biggest and most ambitious housebuilding programmes in the country. Ayrshire Central is a well-known location and we are excited about the plans which will breathe life into this part of Irvine.”

This site is expected to be supported by over £20 million of Scottish Government funding.
