The Council is set to review its properties in Irvine…

Engagement has commenced with those members of staff who will be directly affected by our decision to rationalise our offices and buildings in Irvine.

Senior Managers will continue to discuss the move in the coming weeks to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.

New proposals for the Irvine area were agreed at a meeting of Cabinet on Tuesday, 19 March.

Key upcoming milestones and dates
  • Relocation of Genealogy services from the Townhouse to Irvine Branch Library, including internal alterations to the library: May 2024 – September 2024
  • Relocation of Business Support & Development services from Quarry Road offices to Cunninghame House: December 2024
  • Relocation of Active Travel and Employability services from Trinity Church to Cunninghame House: November 2024
  • Relocation of KA Leisure from Quarry Road offices to the Townhouse: November 2024
Bridgegate House
  • Form cross-service staff steering group and undertake a series of engagement workshops: May 2024 – August 2024
  • Prepare detailed staff accommodation plan for Cunninghame House:  August 2024 – November 2024
  • Complete the relocation of office staff from Bridgegate and within Cunninghame House: November 2024 – December 2024

The changes will see staff vacating a number of buildings including the Quarry Road office block, Trinity Church, Galt House, Greenwood Conference Centre and Bridgegate House and, in the main, relocating to Cunninghame House.

Future use of these buildings will be explored through a marketing exercise, and, in the case of Bridgegate House and Trinity Church, options will also be considered through the emerging plans to re-imagine Irvine’s town centre.

The plans will be delivered over several phases, with office staff from Bridgegate relocating by December 2024 and the full vacation of Bridgegate House by May 2026. In the meantime, the Council’s Customer Service Centre and the retail units on the ground floor of Bridgegate House will continue to operate as normal.
