Town centre parking strategy

North Ayrshire Council has developed a Town Centre Parking Strategy 2014 - 20 (PDF, 1.5mb) to ensure a consistent and coherent approach to parking that:

  • enhances and supports local economies
  • improves traffic flows and reduces congestion
  • manages parking spaces to ensure adequate availability and the prioritisation of prime spaces
  • reduces carbon emissions and improves air quality
  • promotes alternative modes of travel

The strategy is regularly reviewed to ensure key aims and objectives are achieved. It compiles detailed research and information in 3 key areas:

  • Key Drivers – a review of issues that influence parking management
  • Consultation and Local Studies – views of residents and businesses, key issues and analysis of car-parks usage in town centres
  • Actions for Delivery – recommended actions for implementation.

The strategy considers parking within the following town centres. It doesn't consider parking within residential areas.

  • Ardrossan
  • Beith
  • Brodick
  • Dalry
  • Irvine
  • Kilbirnie
  • Kilwinning
  • Largs
  • Saltcoats
  • Stevenston
