Planning and the environment
East Ayrshire’s character is shaped by the quality and diversity of its buildings and Victorian streetscapes. This heritage is being restored for future generations thanks to our commitment to deliver a multi-million pound physical and economic regeneration strategy for the town centres and business locations in East Ayrshire.
Our Planning and Economic Development Services play a key role in promoting, stimulating and encouraging all types of development to meet the needs and aspirations of the people and communities of East Ayrshire.
We are responsible for the preparation of statutory development plans, including the Local Plan and the Structure Plan, and for overseeing all aspects of the planning and building standards processes.
Within Economic Development we provide advice and financial support to local businesses and access to vocational training and to employment opportunities for local people.
