Ayr Renaissance regeneration work continues to brighten up town centre

Images of the Brig o’ Doon and Turnberry lighthouse and the Ailsa Craig, two of South Ayrshire’s most iconic landmarks, have been placed at the bottom of Ayr High Street by Ayr Renaissance as part of their regeneration work within the town.


Alan Macdonald, Chair of Ayr Renaissance said: “The images are stunning, they really brighten up the street. We have been working in partnership with South Ayrshire Council, local businesses and others who want to help us create a bright future for Ayr. The work we have already carried out in the town centre including newly installed floodlighting at the Auld Brig, overhead lighting in Newmarket Street, painting buildings in the Sandgate, refurbishing street furniture are all making a real difference.

“We will continue to work to improve residential, retail and commercial accommodation within Ayr.”

Speaking about the latest Ayr Renaissance addition to the High Street, Lesley Bloomer, Executive Director Development & Environment and Council representative on Ayr Renaissance for South Ayrshire Council said: “The colourful images have been placed in premises at the bottom of Ayr High Street. This is an area which is heavily frequented by pedestrians and people travelling by bus, so the images will be viewed many.

“I am positive that local residents and businesses will like the change which brightens up the street and is a showcase for two of our iconic landmarks. The images are so eye-catching that I am sure visitors will stop and enjoy them and hopefully take the time to visit both destinations and others within South Ayrshire.

“We are working with Ayr Renaissance to breathe new life into Ayr town centre and make it a must visit destination for tourists and a place that people aspire to come and live in.”

Plans are being made to place more images in premises in the town centre.
