South Beach Promenade Park

Development Opportunity

North Ayrshire Council is pleased to offer to the market a potential development opportunity for a café/coffee shop facility on the popular promenade fronting Ardrossan South Beach.

The development will add focal interest to enhance the beachfront landscape for both locals and visitors and will provide improved facilities.

…To create a more connected Ardrossan that attracts visitors and helps develop local business.

It is proposed that the existing toilet block located approximately mid-way along South Beach Promenade Park be replaced/redeveloped with a purpose built café or coffee house incorporating toilets which will be available for public use during opening hours.

North Ayrshire Council is offering a long ground lease at an initial peppercorn rent to allow the development to proceed. The rent will revert to market level after the first three years of the lease to enable the business to become established.

Design Guidelines

The development will be limited to a café or coffee house but not a restaurant or take away. It should be a standalone structure extending to around 100 m2 and may also have an outdoor patio with serving area.

Given the prominence of the location, only the highest quality of design will be considered appropriate.

There is considered to be ample parking in the surrounding area, but the design should incorporate two staff and one disabled parking space.


It is assumed that mains supplies of electricity and water are available on or close to the site.

At present there is no gas supply to the site, however there is gas infrastructure within the vicinity.


As previously stated, a long ground lease is available at an initial peppercorn rent, reverting to market rental after three years.

Interested parties are therefore invited to submit their design concept and business case along with proposed development timeframe.

Offers will be judged on the basis of these.

Legal Costs

The successful offerer will be responsible for meeting the Council’s Legal and Estates fees in connection with the granting of the new lease including any Stamp Duty, Land Tax and Registration Dues.ce.
