Ho­tel blame game goes on

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS -

The great Belleisle blame game con­tin­ues. South Ayr­shire Coun­cil point the fin­ger at de­vel­oper John Camp­bell . . . and John Camp­bell points two fin­gers at South Ayr­shire Coun­cil!

The truth is prob­a­bly some­where in be­tween. But in the mean­time, Belleisle House Ho­tel con­tin­ues to be an em­bar­rass­ing blight at the heart of Ayr­shire’s finest coun­try park.

I would never ex­pect our en­light­ened coun­cil­lors to do any­thing I humbly sug­gest.

In fact, I sus­pect they would prob­a­bly do the ex­act op­po­site - just out of spite.

But amongst all their lead­er­ship pan­els, ad­vi­sor y groups, com­mit­tees and sub- com­mit­tees – shouldn’t there be a lit­tle “Belleisle Group” set aside to deal specif­i­cally with this is­sue?

Belleisle tran­scends lo­cal party pol­i­tics – leader Dou­glas Camp­bell needs to pick a cross- bench team of ex­pe­ri­enced big hit­ters who are will­ing to put time and ef­fort into de­liv­er­ing a com­pleted - and long term vi­able - Belleisle House Ho­tel.

And they need to start work yes­ter­day.
