Ardrossan Harbour upgrade!

Engagement sessions have taken place in Brodick and Ardrossan to explain the ongoing work of the Project Steering Group looking to address how additional improvements in the port and better coordination with public transport and wider regeneration initiatives across Ardrossan can support better service delivery and build a stronger future for both Arran and Ardrossan and meet community needs.

The information boards prepared for the community engagement session held in Brodick and Ardrossan are now available for anyone unable to attend the sessions.

As we get more information we plan to move this information onto a specific website but until then this temporary arrangement will allow interested parties to review and comment.
