Ayrshire Housing, an Ayr based housing association, has submitted a planning application for 40 flats on the town’s harbourside.

If approved, this will complete the final part of a 25 year old masterplan to transform an area of redundant dockland and barracks for housing and leisure.

The site itself was formerly an ice station for Ayr’s fishing fleet and is beside the quay to which the PS Waverley will hopefully return with her new boiler next year.

Designed by award winning architects Page/Park, the one and two bedroom flats will cater for range of housing needs. Subject to a successful funding bid to the Scottish Government, building work should start in the middle of 2020.

The planning application can be viewed online.
