Bid for Barassie

Ayrshire Post - - Bob Shields -

Barassie’s the odd one out when it comes to com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

And com­mu­nity coun­cil­lor Erica Wil­liamson reck­ons it is miss­ing out on fa­cil­i­ties such as play equip­ment.

The area has not had a res­i­dents group in mod­ern times.

Erica said: “It is part of Troon and I don’t think there is enough done for it by the coun­cil.”

But dis­trict coun­cil­lor Phil Sax­ton de­fended their role, say­ing there was a play­park and foot­ball pitch at Queens Drive.

He added: “And I don’t think any of the coun­cil­lors have been ap­proached by any of the res­i­dents re­gard­ing the fa­cil­i­ties. If they were to do so, we could take that up.”

At­tempts could now be made to stir up some in­ter­est in form­ing a new res­i­dents group for Barassie.
