Ardrossan Health Centre Building

Regeneration projects in Irvine Bay are set to benefit from more than £5 million of funding from the Scottish Government, after Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement yesterday.

A total of £5.2 m has been granted to Irvine Bay Regeneration Company which will see an area of derelict land in Ardrossan transformed into a new medical centre, and the development of quality industrial and office space in Irvine.

Patrick Wiggins, chief executive, Irvine Bay Regeneration Company, said: “We are delighted to be awarded these funds. The Annickbank Innovation Campus is a key element in our strategy to deliver the Irvine Enterprise Area, and to have secured funding for phase 1 is great news.

“A new medical centre in Ardrossan has been a long-held aspiration for both the local community and Irvine Bay, and now it is to become a reality. The Ailsa Road workshops will provide new high quality industrial space. These projects will create both construction and long-term employment opportunities.”

Cllr Willie Gibson, Leader of North Ayrshire Council, added: “This is great news for North Ayrshire. The funding will allow these important projects to move forward quickly providing a very welcome boost to the local economy.”

Ardrossan Health Centre

Ardrossan Health Centre Building Planning Approval

A state-of-the-art health centre with a doctor’s and dentist’s surgery is set to be built at Ardrossan Harbour. Briefed to design a “healthy centre”, a place that’s bright and airy rather than institutional award-winning architects Reiach and Hall, have drawn up plans for a two-storey contemporary building that has light internal spaces and a landscaped garden.

Incorporating a “C” listed, derelict police station, the £5 million development will replace the existing South Beach Surgery which has seen better days.

Developed by North Ayrshire Ventures Ltd (NAV Ltd) – the joint venture company set up by North Ayrshire Council and The EDI Group – the health centre aims to continue the regeneration of Ardrossan.

Proposals for the new health centre have this week been submitted to North Ayrshire Council for planning permission and will be considered by the Council’s planning committee in the near future.

The health centre represents the third development by North Ayrshire Ventures, who have already delivered two successful office buildings in Saltcoats town centre and at 1 Pennyburn Road, Kilwinning. Together these two speculative office developments have brought more than 200 new jobs to the area.

The centre, located on a prominent corner site opposite the new Asda store, will offer a GP practice with nine consulting rooms, together with a Dental clinic of two surgeries.

The developers are aiming for an “excellent” BREEAM rating, the world’s most widely used environmental standard for buildings: if they are successful it will be the first health centre in Scotland to achieve this high standard.

Neil Johnson, Director of North Ayrshire Ventures Ltd, said:

“It’s a very significant development that will make a big difference to people in Ardrossan. It will offer a calm, pleasant environment for patients and visitors. We’ve designed a building that we hope will boost people’s spirits when they visit.

“And in energy efficiency terms, we’re aiming for a lean, mean and green building that will set new standards for health centres in Scotland.”

Subject to planning permission being secured, work will start on site later this year. The building is expected to be completed by summer 2009.
