New plans to transform Irvine harbour and Ardeer peninsula have been revealed.

A leisure centre called the Aqua Dome could be built alongside Scotland’s tallest climbing wall and thousands of homes.

The proposals have been put together by North Ayrshire Council and the NPL Group.

Plans would also include a new road bridge uniting Irvine harbourside and Ardeer peninsula.

The proposals form a key component of the Ayrshire Growth Deal, which has been described as “aspirational” by Council Leader Joe Cullinane.

Designers said the vision was aimed at connecting the two areas and building world-class culture and leisure facilities for residents.
