Town Centre and Retail Local Development Plan revealed!
South Ayrshire Council adopted the South Ayrshire Town Centre and Retail Local Development Plan (TCRLDP) on 12 April 2017.
The TCRLDP sets out the Council's vision for Ayr town centre, the largest town centre in South Ayrshire, to support the regeneration work of Ayr Renaissance. In addition, it details the policies governing retail developments both in, and out of, all South Ayrshire’s town centres.
The TCRLDP supersedes only those parts of the existing, adopted (2014) South Ayrshire Local Development Plan (LDP) that relate to town centres and retailing: all other elements of the LDP remain in force. The TCRLDP’s vision and spatial strategy supplement the spatial strategy of the LDP. As such the TCRLDP and LDP, together, constitute the local development plan for South Ayrshire, with all planning applications falling to be assessed against relevant policies in both documents.
