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.
