The coun­cil­lors

Ayrshire Post - - News -

seven south ayr­shire coun­cil­lors were given the power to de­ter­mine one of ayr’s big­gest plan­ning de­ci­sions in decades. and af­ter hours of ob­jec­tions, they de­liv­ered their ver­dict in clear- cut style. tories Mary Kil­patrick, Margaret toner, peter Con­very and Iain Fitzsim­mons joined with Craig Mackay ( sNp), Ian Ca­vana ( labour) and plan­ning chair­man Brian Con­nolly ( In­de­pen­dent) to slam the door shut.

Cllr Con­very said: “the first time I saw the Re­nais­sance plans, I was over the moon.

“look­ing at this now, it’s very dif­fi­cult to say I have any con­fi­dence in the syn­ergy be­tween the new build and where it will sit. It is a build­ing that does noth­ing for me.”

Cllr Mackay, right, added: “It could have been more am­bi­tious and is cer­tainly a missed op­por­tu­nity that we don’t have a bet­ter de­sign.”

a mo­tion put for­ward by Cllr Kil­patrick to refuse the ap­pli­ca­tion was unan­i­mously backed by all mem­bers of the panel.
