Ayrshire Post - - News - Sarah Hil­ley

trav­ellers have set up camp agaIN at a prime seafront po­si­tion in ayr.

Four car­a­vans were parked on the grassy area at the beach be­side seafield Drive on Mon­day in the sun.

One res­i­dent said af­ter the car­a­vans ar­rived: “I saw a woman walk­ing along at the beach in her dress­ing gown drink­ing Red Bull.”

the area was packed with dog walk­ers and folk out en­joy­ing the good weather.

south ayr­shire Coun­cil has been asked to find ways to pre­vent them stop­ping over.

the is­sue was dis­cussed at last week’s Fort, seafield and Wal­lace­town Com­mu­nity Coun­cil.

Coun­cil­lor siob­hian Brown said res­i­dents had been in touch with her ask­ing for bol­lards to be put in place to pre­vent them driv­ing on to the grass. she said dis­cus­sions had taken place about pre­ven­tion mea­sures but feed­back sug­gested bol­lards would not solve it.

she said: “It is a vast area to put bol­lards on.

“I think if they want onto the grass they will find a way.”

last month trav­ellers left their own poo in the dunes.
