Ayrshire Joint Planning Steering Group
Town centres play an important role in our community. They offer a wide range of services to the community, to the visitor and provide a focus for employment, shopping and leisure facilities. Within Ayrshire the town centres are generally well integrated with the transportation network. However they often display characteristics of physical decline, a poor range of shops and services and poorly managed and maintained public areas. Focusing demand for these services and facilities toward town centres as well as promoting integrated management of them, will ensure continuing reinvestment in the urban fabric.
