Kilwinning residents can discuss what community projects they’d like to see taken forward to improve the town.

Locals can have their say on the projects under consideration – which were put forward by residents – on March 8 in the Kilwinning Evangelical Church Hall (formerly Erskine Chuch hall).

Starting at 5.45pm and ending at 8.30pm, the North Ayrshire Council organised meeting will include Q&As as well as a workshop and presentations.

Plans up for consideration include activating vacant and under-used buildings, promoting and bettering awareness and accessibility of local heritage, supporting more activities and a venue for young people, lessening traffic on key pedestrian streets, enhancing the Abbey grounds, and creating additional improvements to McGavin Park.

Councillor Tony Gurney, cabinet member for Economy and Climate Change, said: “It’s great that we are now reaching this exciting stage of our plans for Kilwinning.

“The initial meetings helped us gather ideas and emerging themes and now we want to work with the local community and groups to take these forward and bring them to reality.

“We look forward to our latest event and learning more from the community and residents to see how the proposals can be progressed.”

Projects will be funded through the council’s Place Based Investment Programme.

Place Framework events were held so that locals could voice their needs and suggest improvement ideas for the council to consider.
