Principal Projects

Active Travel

A South Ayrshire Council / Sustrans funded project which will improve walking and cycling Maybole’s historic centre and the new school campus when it is completed. Development work on this project is already underway.

Major Building Improvements

This project will invest in a number of key historic buildings in Maybole over the next four years. The aim of this project is to ensure these landmark buildings are protected for current and future generations. Funding from the project is already being used to help renovate the Speakers, which is hoped to be ready late 2020. Funding will also be used to renovate the Town Hall and the Castle, improving these facilities for the people in and around Maybole and helping attract new visitors to the Town.

Shop Front Improvements and Small Grants Scheme

This scheme will provide grants to owners of business and property in the main street to help preserve historic buildings and improve shopfronts. The scheme will run along the main road from the Speakers to the Cassillis Hotel. This will make a significant difference to the buildings improving the visual appeal of the centre. Help will be provided to owners to develop their improvement plans. The scheme expects to launch spring/summer 2020. Find out more information here or please get in touch.

Activity Programme

The activity programme looks to maximise the benefit of the regeneration of Maybole’s Town Centre for local people. The programme includes opportunities to learn traditional building skills, encouraging young people into the construction industry as well as encouraging local businesses to work with the project and develop a number of apprenticeships. It will include a project to document the regeneration of the Town Centre. There will also be talks, workshops and volunteering opportunities. This project is expected to launch in Autumn 2020.

Public Realm

Focused on improving the public space in the High street this will make a significant difference to the centre of Maybole. The plans will see the transformation of the High Street when the A77 bypass is complete. The High Street will become a place for the local community to enjoy and where visitors can admire the many historic buildings. The increased footfall will help local businesses thrive.
