Housing renewal to redraw Ayr skyline
August 14 2020
South Ayrshire Council has opened a public consultation for 90 new build amenity flats to replace three tower blocks at Riverside Place, Ayr.
Led by Lawrence McPherson Architects (LMA) and Ashleigh Construction the consultation seeks to establish ways and means of improving connectivity along the riverfront such as delivering new green spaces and pedestrian routes while also providing replacement accommodation for existing tenants.
Located on the north bank of the River Ayr within walking distance of the town centre the indicative plan calls for two blocks of accommodation fronting the river, maximising shared public open space to the centre and rear.
In a consultation statement, LMA wrote: "The site layout maximises open space and creates unenclosed shared areas, in line with the ‘home zone’ logic, and buffer gardens to the river walkway.
"The proposed massing looks to offer a more consistent scale, frontage and roofscape in line with the established pattern and character of the riverfront and Ayr."
The online consultation will run until 28 August with a full planning application following shortly thereafter.
