Ayrshire Shoreline Management Plan

The Ayrshire Shoreline Management Plan (SMP) has been completed by North and South Ayrshire Councils.

It was adopted by North Ayrshire Council on 4 September 2018 and South Ayrshire Council on 18 September 2018. 

What is the Ayrshire SMP?

The SMP is a large-scale assessment of the risks associated with coastal tides.

It will help to inform the future management of these risks to land and people by delivering an action plan.

The plan:

Green-TickPrompts land use and policy changes

Green-TickRecommends further studies to allow physical protective measures to take place in the future.

The Ayrshire SMP extends from Skelmorlie to the Galloway Burn, on the north east edge of Loch Ryan. The islands of Arran and Great Cumbrae are included.
