Craigie Sports Development

Drop-in consultation event, Thursday 6 June

We’re holding a drop-in consultation event on the proposed £7.2 million Craigie Sports Development at Ayr Academy between 3pm-8pm on Thursday 6 June – and you are invited to attend.

The proposed development will further enhance sport and leisure provision in the local area with a range of new sports facilities to complement those already provided at Ayr Academy.

The new facilities would include a floodlit 8-lane running track, grass pitch infield, car parking, changing facilities, seated spectator stand, indoor warm-up area and a floodlit all-weather sports pitch.

As well as supporting the provision of first-class sports facilities within Craigie, the project also supports Ayr Rugby Club’s desire to make Dam Park its home ground as it transitions into the new Pro 6 rugby set-up.

The proposals would ensure continued quality sports and leisure provision for those who currently uses Dam Park, while allowing the rugby club to significantly invest in Dam Park as its home ground.

To give local clubs, existing users of Dam Park and the wider community the chance to discuss the proposed facilities and have their say, you are invited to come along to our drop-in consultation event at Ayr Academy between 3pm-8pm on Thursday 6 June.
