Ayr Renaissance Completed Projects

Ayr Townscape Heritage Initiative

Townscape Heritage schemes exist across the country. Most are funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and aim to reverse the decline to our best loved historic townscapes.  The Ayr THI was initiated in 2010 and was completed in March 2017.

The Ayr Townscape Heritage Initiative was administered by Ayr Renaissance and sought to meet the aims of the THI through the renovation of the priority buildings on New Bridge Street, and by making grant funding available to other owners of buildings within the THI area.

The renovation of the priority buildings was completed in March 2017, bringing a significant improvement to the environment at the entrance to the town centre on the New Bridge. In addition, the grant funding facilitated the re-roofing of Dansarena on Fort Street amongst other smaller projects, and funded numerous complimentary initiatives such as the installation of plaques on the lanes in the town, and self-guided heritage walking tours.
