Delineation of footpaths and designated rights of way across South Ayrshire. Please note that not all footpaths are considered core paths nor are they automatically rights of way.
Core paths, as the most important routes in the area, provide a basic framework of routes which meets community needs and minimises any potential conflict with land management operations. They provide opportunities for walking, cycling, horse riding and other activities for people of all abilities. Core Paths include existing paths or new paths and the surface may vary from beaten earth paths, to surfaced paths and tracks.

Boundaries for designated greenbelts as defined in the South Ayrshire Local Development Plan. The greenbelt areas provide an effective method of: • protecting the operational needs of Prestwick Airport. • managing the development pressures placed on land around Ayr, Prestwick and Troon in terms of maintaining the identity of towns and preventing coalescence; • maintaining the landscape setting of settlements; • providing recreational opportunities; • and protecting good quality agricultural land.
The employment land supply is intended to meet the requirements of Scottish Planning Policy, which states (at paragraph 46) that: - “Planning authorities should ensure there is a range and choice of marketable sites and locations for businesses allocated in development plans, including opportunities for mixed use development, to meet anticipated requirements and a variety of size and quality requirements”.
