On the 9th of November 1966, Irvine and Kilwinning were designated a 'new town', and plans were put in place to massively expand both settlements to accommodate new businesses and thousands of homes for families. Attached in the document is Part 1 (of 5) of the original plan as submitted to the Secretary of State. The New Town developments weren't always universally popular, but no one can doubt that they have made both towns what they are today and touched thousands of lives.
