Transformation Strategy update 2014
We have continued to make positive progress during 2013/14, particularly in terms of raising educational attainment and equipping local people for the world of work; delivering new houses across the region; regenerating town centres and facilitating change to enable older members of the community to live more independently.
- Educational attainment continues to improve year on year and SQA results for 2014 demonstrated a continuing trend for strong performance.
- New Council houses are being completed at locations right across East Ayrshire, providing comfortable, modern, fit-for-purpose dwellings for approximately 550 local residents.
- Heritage-led regeneration projects in both Cumnock and Kilmarnock have played a significant role in continuing to improve the town centre environment.
- Proportionately more older people are being supported at home rather than in care settings. A wide range of support services is available for older people through the Reshaping Care for Older People programme and these are delivered in partnership with the council’s community planning partners.
