Planning consent sought for Ardrossan community campus
North Ayrshire Council has received a planning application to develop a new community campus on the former Shell refinery site in Ardrossan.
Designed by JM Architects, the facility will comprise learning provision across early years, primary, secondary and additional support needs.
Dubbed a super school, the project will have shared community facilities including a library and learning hub; a swimming pool; sports hall; gymnasium; dance studio & fitness studio, and outdoor sports facilities including two sports pitches and a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA).
If the application is approved by North Ayrshire Council’s planning committee later this year, it is anticipated that the new campus will be open in August 2026.
Construction is due to begin next year, but before the structure can be built an extensive remediation programme and other enabling works will be carried out.
