The potential of North Ayrshire’s Coastal Economy | Maximising our Resources

A partnership between North Ayrshire Council and Crown Estate Scotland that vowed to maximise the potential of North Ayrshire’s glorious coastal resources recently celebrated its first anniversary. And the union is already having an impact after 12 months. In summer 2020, the two organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding – a formal commitment – to identify opportunities for regeneration and investment in the area. Over the last year, a number of key early objectives have been met. These include: – Appointment of a Marine Tourism Development Officer to advance key -project activity and enable community and partner engagement – Exploring models of investment to support key projects – Supporting Ayrshire Growth Deal projects – Crown Estate Scotland have become a key stakeholder and participant across major Ayrshire Growth Deal investments bringing resources and expertise – Development of community and marine funding bids In August, the two parties met at Irvine Harbourside for a tour of the area and further discussions about how they could attract investment into North Ayrshire and work together as anchor institutions, to ensure we are using the Ayrshire Growth Deal to deliver Community Wealth Building. ——————————————————————– Enjoy this video?
