Largs Seawall Replacement


North Ayrshire Council is set to replace part of the existing seawall in Largs Bay, Largs. This part runs along the northern seaward section of Largs Bay, for approximately 300 metres between Aubery Crescent and the existing RNLI slipway.

The existing seawall is in a state of disrepair and needs to be upgraded. It was originally constructed in the 1970s as a replacement facing for an older seawall, and it has deteriorated over time due to repeated exposure to seawater. North Ayrshire Council want to ensure that the seawall continues to provide optimum protection and support against wave activity and coastal erosion. The best design solution is to replace/encapsulate the existing seawall.


In June 2022 a public consultation was carried out, with a further Marine Licence Pre-application Consultation in January 2023.

These consultations have had a very positive reception along with productive feedback from the local community.
