“As part of the Platinum Jubilee Civic Honors competition, we published information asking local governments to apply for two separate honors, including city status and the mayor or provost status competition.
The meeting paper added: “The North Ayrshire Council is keen to plan ahead to maximize the potential of the opportunities offered by Platinum Jubilee.
“Early engagement with communities and partners by connected communities enables local communities to maximize citizen pride and capacity building opportunities through community participation and leadership.
“A budget of £ 25,000 has been identified from existing connected community funding to support community-led events using a participatory approach.
“The literacy and art activities offered will also be covered by existing budgets.
“The additional holidays are expected to cost around £ 64,000, and switching from ‘variable’ to ‘fixed’ holidays may incur additional costs.
