Current housing developments

North Ayrshire Council is committed to ensuring continuous improvement within local areas. This can range from new homes, through housing association and council house building, to the regeneration of existing sites.

Council house building plans can be found in our Strategic Housing Investment Plan 2019-24 (PDF, 381kb).

Our investment priorities are detailed in the Local Housing Strategy (PDF, 2.4mb).

The following developments are currently being completed. 

Irvine/Kilwinning Developments

Dickson Drive, Irvine

Dickson Drive Phase 2

Number of homes: 24
Size: 2 and 3 bedroom
Status: on-site

The new £3.7m, 24 unit development will be a positive addition to phase 1, which was completed in 2015, and will deliver general needs homes, wheelchair properties and those built specifically for older people.

In addition to the general sustainability features within all properties, Dickson Drive will also include two unique ‘Sustainable Demonstrator Homes’. These homes will showcase the latest design and technology, and set a benchmark for building sustainable properties at both a local and national level – meeting the highest sustainability ratings.

This development is expected to complete in Summer/Autumn 2019.

Tarryholme Drive, Irvine

Number of homes: 20
Size: 1 bedroom
Status: on-site

This project will see the refurbishment of 20 supported accommodation homes as part of a wider Tarryholme Drive Project in partnership with the North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership.

The refurbishment is expected to complete in Autumn/Winter 2019.

Garnock Valley Developments

Watt Court, Dalry

Watt Court 

Number of homes: 45 (49 units)
Size: 1 and 2 bedroom
Status: on-site

The current Watt Court will be demolished and replaced by a modern multi-story sheltered housing complex. The development will include 22 sheltered housing units, 8 amenity bungalows and a brand new housing office. 15 supported accommodation homes will also be built on the site.

The sheltered housing unit will include a visiting services room and a scooter store.

This development is expected to complete in Winter 2019.

Connell Court, Kilbirnie

Connell Court 

Number of homes: 17
Size: 1 and 2 bedroom sheltered housing
Status: on-site

The refurbishment of this sheltered housing complex will upgrade the existing homes, communal areas and external fabric of the building. A new scooter store and visiting services room will be created as part of the works.

The work is expected to complete in Summer/ Autumn 2019.

Kilbirnie Housing Office

Number of homes: 3
Size: 1 and 2 bedroom
Status: on-site 

This project will refurbish the Kilbirnie Housing Office (which has been relocated to the Health and Social Care Partnership Office at the Garnock Valley Area Centre) into three town centre amenity properties.

North Coast (including Cumbrae) Developments

Ardrossan Road, Seamill

Number of homes: 31
Size: 1 and 2 bedroom
Status: on-site

This site will incorporate a mix of general needs houses, general needs flats, amenity flats, and a wheelchair accessible flat, developed in partnership with Hope Homes and The Wee House Company Ltd. through North Ayrshire Council’s Affordable Housing Policy. 

This development is unique as the 31 units will be constructed in an off-site factory and then transported to the site in three parts for assembly, this is a first for North Ayrshire Council. This will reduce construction time required, improve construction quality, and reduces waste.

Works are expected to complete in winter 2020.

Development Partners

In addition to the new council house building programme, some of our housing association development partners are building new affordable homes within North Ayrshire. More information on these projects can be found on the websites of each housing association.
