Flats plan for town centre


multi- storey car park beside the proposed site.

And there would be a choice of 11 two- bedroom flats and 23 one- bedroom flats. The design statement added: “The Carrick Street site offers the opportunit­y to deliver new, low energy, town centre housing. These will principall­y be aimed at elderly residents who will benefit from the proximity to all the town centre amenities. Central Ayr is identified as a priority area for new affordable housing in the council’s local housing strategy.”

Developers believe the building would repair and bring together “disparate features” on Carrick Street.

The design brief said: “The overriding context is of large rectangula­r buildings clashing with traditiona­l street lines.”

It added: “We consider the layout being developed is a significan­t benefit to a town centre site which is in need of significan­t improvemen­t.”

Developers want to entice a cinema operator to revive the Kyle Centre. The council also want to build a swimming pool in the vicinity. The aim is to transform the retail hub into a leisure and entertainm­ent centre.
