Public invited to Ardrossan Harbour upgrade events
Posted on 12 Oct 2018
Members of the public are being invited to check out up-to-date plans for the redevelopment of Ardrossan Harbour.
Special engagement events are to be held on Arran and in Ardrossan later this month.
The aim of the events is to provide an update to residents on how proposals for the harbour are shaping up, giving visitors the chance to pose questions to the parties involved.
It is expected that representatives from Transport Scotland, Calmac, CMAL, Peel Ports and North Ayrshire Council will be present.
North Ayrshire Council Leader Joe Cullinane said: “The redevelopment of Ardrossan Harbour has been complicated process but the organisations involved have been working behind the scenes to get the plans moving.
“Hopefully, these engagement sessions will allow people to see our hopes and vision for the future of Ardrossan Harbour as well as the benefits it will bring to residents of Arran.
“We want Ardrossan Harbour to be a quality destination that attracts tourists and visitors alike and supports growth through stronger links to Ardrossan town centre. Allied to this ambition are opportunities to develop a series of inter-connected marine developments which position Ardrossan as a leading waterfront and marine destination of national importance.
“The redevelopment of Ardrossan Harbour is a major project and remains absolutely key to our ambitions. Not only will it bring economic benefits to North Ayrshire, but it will also support a more resilient first-class ferry service between Arran and the mainland.”
The first session will staged at the Brodick Hall, on Arran, on Tuesday, October 23, followed by a similar event at Ardrossan Civic Centre on Wednesday, October 24. Both events will run from 4pm-6.30pm
Both will be a drop-in events, allowing people to visit at any point and chat with representatives of the various organisations.
