Project background

North Ayrshire Council has been awarded £70,000 to undertake a programme of improvements to the path network and greenspaces linking the town of Irvine with the Irvine Innovation and Industry site (I3). The improvements planned include: the design and construction of new, link paths; upgrades to existing paths; wildflower and tree planting; and the installation of new signage and interpretation. The improvements were identified in the Irvine Bay Green Network Study that was funded through the CSGN Development Fund in 2010-11 and build upon work undertaken in the area with support from the Development Fund in 2011-12 and 2012-13. The project will also create a new link between National Cycle Networks routes 7 and 73, making Irvine and the I3 site much more accessible by walking and cycling.
