En­terkine mar­quee li­cence

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS -

A plush ho­tel has been given per­mis­sion to re­tain its con­tro­ver­sial party mar­quee for another three years.

En­terkine House, near Annbank, gained the green light de­spite a string of com­plaints to South Ayr­shire Coun­cil over noise.

The fu­ture of the mar­quee has been un­der threat, with ho­tel bosses forced to spend £ 60,000 in sound­proof­ing tech­niques.

Ent e rk i n e g e n e ra l man­ager, Colin Caird, said: “The plan­ning per­mis­sion was es­sen­tial to us.

“Be­ing able to host wed­dings and other events ac­counts for so much of our in­come and al­lows us to em­ploy 60 staff and make a ma­jor con­tri­bu­tion to the South Ayr­shire econ­omy.

“We do un­der­stand that noise from func­tions has to be man­aged re­spon­si­bly and that is why we are work­ing so hard with the coun­cil’s en­vi­ron­men­tal health team to make sure we com­ply with reg­u­la­tions.”
