New all-weather pitch for Girvan

People in South Carrick were asked to have their say about plans to create a new all-weather pitch in Girvan. More than 200 people attended a recent consultation event on the issue but with high levels of interest in the project.

As the first stage in the project the local community is being consulted about potential locations for the pitch alongside ideas for the kinds of activity that would take place, with potential sports including football, rugby, and hockey.

A budget of £850,000 was outlined in the Capital Investment Programme in March 2018, with the work likely to take place in 2019/20.
