Ayr Renaissance has coordinated Ayr's involvement in the Business Improvement District, Scotland (BIDS) project. The principle outcome of this was the formation of the Ayr Town Centre Steering Group in August 2014.

The Town Centre Steering Group comprises individuals who represent retailers, business owners, police Scotland, the Gaiety Theatre, Ayr Renaissance and South Ayrshire Council. The group meets regularly and supports plans and proposals to improve the shopping experience within Ayr.


The Town Centre Steering Group acts as a network for local businesses, it has developed a website with a dedicated forum for business interaction and holds regular business engagement events. If you are a town centre business please visit
