Council to seek public views on expansion of early years provision in Troon


South Ayrshire Council will undertake public engagement as it looks to expand the number of early years spaces in Troon.

The proposal is to move the Early Years Centre into Troon Library, which means that the library would relocate to the ground floor in Troon Municipal building.

The Council has explored a number of options in Troon over the years as it looks to increase the amount of early learning and childcare spaces. If it goes ahead, the provision will also mean places for 2-year-olds and more flexible choices of attendance patterns and times for parents.

If agreed, £540,000 would be invested in the new look library and approximately £1.4 million would be used to convert the existing library into a fit for purpose Early Years Centre.

Engagement with locals is key when considering these proposals and the Council will conduct face to face meetings with groups that could be affected. There are also plans for an online survey.

The public engagement is set to begin in mid-March and will last until June. We'll issue more information when it becomes available.
