At a glance – North Ayrshire Council’s Budget for 2024/25

On February 28, North Ayrshire Council set its budget for 2024/25.
Revenue Budget
Capital Budget

The £427million Revenue Budget pays for the day-to-day services we will provide over the next year.  It aims to help our staff and residents during the ongoing Cost-of-Living Crisis and rising energy costs.

Some of the key highlights include:

Continued support to help people with the Cost-of-Living Crisis with funds to be invested in a Business Recovery and Sustainability Fund and Community Wealth Building
Council Tax frozen at 2023/24 levels, with funding provided by the Scottish Government based on a five percent increase.
A reinforcement of our commitment to net-zero carbon emissions by investing in solar PV projects
Continued protection of frontline services across the Council despite the continuing challenging economic climate
An additional £750,000 towards our roads budget
£160,000 earmarked to expand the work being carried out by School Welfare Rights Officers

Our £406million Capital Budget was also approved on budget day and commits investment over the coming years to a series of important infrastructure projects. Among these exciting projects are:

Major investment into new schools - Montgomerie Park Primary School and Ardrossan Community Campus
A total of £13million over the coming years to transform Irvine's Great Harbour into a first-class visitor destination
A rolling programme to help transition our fleet to lower-carbon alternatives
Continued support for both the Millport Flood Protection Scheme and Millburn Flood Protection Scheme on Cumbrae
Commitment to the environment with the delivery of Council-owned solar PV farms at Shewalton and Nethermains
The £29.5million upgrade of the B714, significantly improving connectivity within North Ayrshire and with wider motorway network in the west of Scotland

The Budget will also support a diverse range of core infrastructure projects such as an £10million investment into street lighting, a rolling programme to help renew playparks across North Ayrshire, and support for a range of Ayrshire Growth Deal projects to help breathe new life into the local economy.
