06jun(jun 6)9:00 am28aug(aug 28)11:59 pmNorth Ayrshire Vacant and Derelict Land Strategy Refresh 2022


North Ayrshire includes some of the largest areas of vacant and derelict land in Scotland. Land in this condition is often the result of the decline in former industrial uses, and has a legacy of issues such as instability, contamination or deterioration. Such sites can have a blighting effect on nearby communities.

In recent years progress has been made to restore vacant and derelict land back to productive use. The Council is now reviewing how it may continue to support and deliver a reduction in the amount of vacant and derelict land in North Ayrshire by updating its Vacant and Derelict Land Strategy.

Why Are We Consulting?

An important part of this process is to understand the thoughts of communities and stakeholders affected by vacant and derelict land to inform the refresh of the North Ayrshire Vacant and Derelict Land Strategy.

The slides here include some background information on vacant and derelict land and the Vacant and Derelict Land Strategy.
