Administrative boundaries for all towns and villages with a population of more than 100 and with a recognised nucleus of village life, such as a school, local shop or public house, as defined in the South Ayrshire Local Development Plan. The boundaries defined include activities and land uses normally considered as being an integral element of these areas - (schools, shops, factories, houses and their gardens being prime examples of these). Great care has been taken in defining the boundaries of the settlements to allow for planned expansion whilst providing a clear distinction between what are areas of built/urban development (town) and what are areas of non-urban or rural development (country). All Planning policies applicable to towns are enforced within these settlement boundaries.
