Council calls for Beith businesses and residents to share accessibility needs ahead of regeneration works

Posted on 28 Aug 2020

Residents and businesses of Main Street, Beith, are being encouraged to take part in a survey to help inform regeneration of the town centre.

The questionnaire seeks to understand the access requirements of locals which will be used to help reduce the impact of the construction works.

The project aims to improve the streetscape of the town centre and will include resurfacing the central carriageway, replacing paving and street furniture and reinstalling road markings.

Residents and business owners can advise on their accessibility requirements, deliveries, vehicle types and operating hours by completing the online survey.

Responses should be submitted by 21 September and will assist in the programming and delivery of the works.

Councillor Jim Montgomerie, Cabinet Member for Place, said: “If you are a business owner or resident of Main Street in Beith, we urge you to complete the questionnaire.

“Construction works are likely to last for a number of weeks, so it’s important that we understand your needs to help with the planning of the works and ultimately minimise any inconvenience during the works.

“We are conscious that local businesses are still trying to recover from the lockdown period so, while regeneration works will make a much needed and welcome improvement to Main Street, and will attract more footfall to the area, we need to make sure that the works are planned carefully to minimise disruption.”

Details of the works will be available on the Council’s website once the plans have been finalised. Immediate questions can be emailed to:Regeneration@north-ayrshire.gov.uk
