The Council want the public to have their say on ideas which include high-quality and attractive public spaces, a new town centre leisure facility and redressing the residential/retail balance on the High Street.

The Council is holding two consultation events in Ayr Town Hall on Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 November between 2:00pm and 7:30pm.

The proposals on show will complement the consultation work which has taken place so far and people will be able to discuss their views with Council Officers and have their say.

As well as the consultation events, there is a short online survey available at The deadline to complete the online survey is Friday 14 December at 5pm.

Information gathered from the consultation events and the online survey will be used to inform the decision making process. The intention would be to hold further consultation events in the future providing more detail on agreed projects including designs, costs and timescales.

EConstruct and Design — Seafield House

EConstruct and Design purchased Seafield House 3 years ago and no renovations have started. Planning discussions have taken place for development of the house and new houses in the grounds. The Community Council is concerned that the building is falling into more disrepair.

Residents are also concerned who is responsible for maintenance of the wall around the grounds. This affects houses in Arrol Drive and Auchendoon Crescent particularly.

The Community Council understands that the Health Board was responsible for maintenance of the wall but if there is to be sales of housing plots, who is to be responsible? The Community Council has written to the developers asking for an update and clarification.

If any residents have concerns please email us and we shall raise with the developer.

The Scottish Community Councils website ( has been redesigned and relaunched. Could you please pass the following information to community councillors?

The redesign is the result of a wish to create an improved website for community councillors and for people interested in community council work to find up-to-date information and advice. The new website has a more inviting visual appearance and provides a clearer structure, which makes the site easier to navigate and the information more accessible to users.

The new site also introduces new features, such as:

  • An improved community council location finder based on open data from the local authorities. The location finder will provide easy access to finding any Scottish community council, with all community council boundaries being available for the first time in a single online and searchable map. As an extra feature the map will also make it possible to see live Public Information Notices through data from The application has been created especially by the Improvement Service's Spatial Information Programme.
  • A dialogue area, where guest editors will be given a voice on community council issues. This area will be linked with the Knowledge Hub Community Council group and further discussion will be encouraged in the forum of this group
  • An event calendar to highlight any events relevant to community councils.
  • New channels to create networks for community councillors, including highlighting the CC twitter accounts, links and info about the Community Council Knowledge Hub group, a regular newsletter.
  • A new well-defined link section for the site to provide a portal to other relevant organisations.

The new website is going to be a live and changing website and a central place for information for community councils. The site already has a variety of useful resources to help with anything from planning to community engagement, and onwards there will be an emphasis on creating even richer content with more showcases of the fantastic work being done by community councils across Scotland. In collaboration with community councillors and other organisations, we will create more online guidance and help for current community councillors with a focus on becoming a genuine portal for all community councillors in Scotland.

We welcome and appreciate all feedback. We want the website to be a resource community councillors will want to come back to, so please let us know if you find any errors, if there is anything you feel is missing, if there's anything you would like to see, or anything you feel could be made better. email me at
