South Ayrshire Council has published its new Council Plan 2023-28.

The ambitious plan outlines the Council's priorities and objectives over the next five years.

Feedback from a recent public consultation was used to help form the plan and map out our new priorities.

The three overarching priorities of the plan are, Spaces and Places; Live, Work, Learn; and Civic and Community Pride.

Under each of these priorities sit outcomes that outline what we want to achieve.

These outcomes include a focus on quality education and lifelong learning; supporting local businesses; ensuring everyone has opportunities to take part in play, sport and recreation; and encouraging tourism and increased visitor numbers.

Leader of South Ayrshire Council, Councillor Martin Dowey said: "As with local authorities across the country, we face unprecedented financial challenges.  This means we need to allocate our resources carefully to ensure we provide best value to everyone who relies on our services. 

"Despite the challenges, we are still ambitious, and our new Council Plan 2023-28 is based on priorities and outcomes that we believe will have the greatest impact on the wellbeing of our communities, the local economy and environment. 

"We want people to choose South Ayrshire as a place to live, visit and invest in and the new Council Plan outlines how we will achieve this."
