THE future of Ayr Renaissance, the group charged with reinvigorating the town, will be up for discussion this week.

A review of the management of the Renaissance board in March had led to non-council members to consider ‘their roles’.

According to a report to the council, Councillor Douglas Campbell, as a member of the board, outlined the various projects that the council were progressing/planning for Ayr Town Centre and ‘questioned the role of the Board in taking these forward’.

The non-council members of the board indicated that they would meet to consider their position.

They subsequently resigned in early September.

The report outlines the need to amend the constitution of the board - which requires a majority of non-council members.

While it does not go into detail about the future of the group, it does suggests that the the existence of the Renaissance group be reviewed.

It said: “Given that the council is now taking forward a number of projects in Ayr town centre, it may be appropriate to consider whether Ayr Renaissance should continue to operate.”
