Symington, Monkton, Loans and Craigie - Thriving Places

South Ayrshire Council is working with the communities and other partners in Symington, Monkton, Loans and Craigie to prepare Place Plans for the villages.

The Place Plans are partnership plans that are led by the community, and will include actions that depend on all parties with an active interest in the villages for their success. To help us identify the issues and opportunities that are present in the villages we need the help of those who live or work in the settlements. As residents you know the village better than anyone and your views will inform the priorities in the plan, and your ideas the basis for the actions to help improve your place.

The Scottish Government has developed the Place Standard tool to help us in assessing our places. This tool consists of 14 questions covering both the physical and social element of a place. For each question you can give a rating from 1 to 7 where 1 means there is a lot of room for improvement and 7 means there is little room for improvement.

Take part

To complete the Place Standard visit the link below and complete the questionnaire by 14th January 2022. 

Once you click on the link you will be asked to confirm the "Sub Area", please identify in this box which of the villages your comments relate to.

For each question you are given the opportunity to give reasons for your rating.  We would be grateful if you could be as specific as possible for the reasons for your rating and include any ideas you might have, or opportunities you are aware of in your village that could improve the score.
