Irvine Harbour redevelopment - further public consultation to be held
Award-winning property company Urban Splash, in partnership with Irvine Bay Regeneration Company, will be holding further public consultation about the redevelopment of Irvine Harbour.
The exhibition is being held at the Ship Inn, Harbour Street, Irvine, on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 August, 10.30am until 5.00pm each day. It will be attended by representatives from Urban Splash and Irvine Bay Regeneration Company. There will also be the opportunity for visitors to provide written feedback.
The consultation comes following a busy 12 months in which the two organisations have worked closely progressing and developing proposals for the harbour, which include the development of 350 homes, new public spaces, an improved quayside space, shops, offices and a hotel, inspired by the traditional influences of Scottish harbour towns.
Patrick Sheridan of Urban Splash said: “Since the spring, when we held a public exhibition we have been working hard to incorporate the feedback of local people and organisations into our plans. We have now reached a point where we can present this to the public in order to submit the application to the local authority towards the end of the summer.”
Irvine Bay Regeneration Company commercial director Omar Elmi concluded: “We would encourage people to attend, as we really do want as much feedback as possible to ensure that this scheme is a sustainable transformation for the area.”
