Maybole Town Centre Regeneration

The Beginnings of Maybole Regeneration Project

Many local people have volunteered their time and worked tirelessly to make this project happen, some working over many years to bring investment to the town. A major catalyst was confirmation that the A77 Bypass would be delivered.


Working with the local community, the Maybole Regeneration Project seeks to create an even better town with restored historic buildings, a greater sense of place and civic pride, a strong local economy  and a thriving town centre that will better serve the local community, businesses and, visitors.

Who We Are

The Maybole Regeneration Project is a unique partnership between Maybole Community Council and South Ayrshire Council. The project is focused on delivering five projects which will make the town an even better place to live, work, visit and do business.

Project Board

The project is overseen by a project board comprised of the Community Council, Cassillis Estate, community representatives and South Ayrshire Council. The Board oversees the project providing overall direction, making sure the project achieves its aims, and is managed effectively.
