Plans for regeneration of Ayrshire seaside town in Ardrossan, Scotland, UK, have been unveiled.

The £70m ($107.6m) proposal will include 400 new homes as well as commercial, retail and leisure facilities being built on the site of an old oil refinery.

Irvine Bay Regeneration Company and Peel Holdings have jointly created the plan, which covers 30 acres along the shoreline next to the existing marina.

Decontamination work is expected to begin this year and work to create a bigger marina is likely to begin next year.

As part of phase I expansion, a planning application to build another 165 berths of the planned 500 new berths will be lodged with North Ayrshire Council in January.

The project is expected to take ten years to complete, according to eveningtimes.co.uk.
