The LAUNCH of the North Ayrshire new inward investment website took place in Harbour Arts Centre this week.

The event was attended by over 60 local businesses and promoted North Ayrshire as an up-and-coming business destination in a bid to attract new innovative companies to the area.

The Council have committed to a £25m investment in Irvine’s i3 campus including a 90-acre development site, access to superfast broadband and the potential for two large wind turbines.

They have also outlined a 100m investment partnership creating more waterside destinations and transforming Irvine’s Harbourside and the Ardeer Peninsula, set to attract an additional 1m visitors a year by 2028.

Improvements are planned for Ardrossan and Hunterston, too.
