PLACES at the annual public meeting of Irvine Bay Regeneration are filling up.
Bookings are well ahead of last year but there is still time to book a spot – because this year there will be TWO meetings.
The first will be at 11am on Thursday, June 7, tailored specially for the business community.
A second meeting will be held at 6pm.
However, both meetings – to be held in the Volunteer Rooms in Irvine – will be open to everyone.
In a second innovation there will be six walking tours around the town centre between meetings.
This will allow Irvine Bay to show off the town centre initiative.
Working in partnership with North Ayrshire Council, the regeneration body will outline what’s on the cards for a new modern look to the town centre.
There will also be opportunities to visit Trinity Church which will play host of an exhibition of young people’s work.
A number of Irvine Bay education projects have been developed around the iconic church.
In additions, the wider scope of regeneration projects taking place between Irvine and Ardrossan will also be updated at the meeting.
Irvine Bay chief Patrick Wiggins said: “The theme is very much that we are here for the long term, that the regeneration company continues to offer the flexibility to adopt to significant changes in economic and market conditions and to maximise our impact on the community.
“Of course the award of Enterprise Area status in Irvine is a major boost and will help us to attract investment and jobs.”
