New all-weather pitch for Girvan

People in South Carrick are being given extra time 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, the deadline for comments is being extended to Friday, 16 November.

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.

South Ayrshire Council are interested to hear whether they think a pitch is needed for the local community and, if so, where the best place would be for it to be situated.

Comments on the project are now being accepted until Friday, 16 November 2018 to the email address: pds@south-ayrshire.gov.uk or through a comments sheet which can be found at the Girvan Customer Services Centre at 17-19 Knockcushan Street, Girvan, KA26 9AG.
