Irvine Beach Park Improvements
Irvine Beach Park was created over 15 years ago on derelict land at Irvine New Town and has since become a popular recreational area for the people of North Ayrshire. The Park began to suffer from dune erosion and general wear due to over use by the public and constant exposure to wind and waves.
The aim of the project was to reduce the impacts of erosion and to upgrade pedestrian links over the sand dunes from the park to the beach.
The completed scheme helps to protect this sensitive coastal environment while still allowing the community to access and enjoy their local natural environment.
Stevenston Beach Improvements
Stevenson Beach is a local nature reserve and the only example of a fully formed dune system in North Ayrshire.
The aim of this project was to conserve the scarce natural resource and reduce erosion by pedestrians meandering through the dune area to access the beach.
The completed scheme was successful in resolving the dune erosion issues and has now made Stevenston Beach more easily accessible to the community, while helping to preserve this important local nature reserve.
