Mossblown and Annbank get ready for the next Rural Forum

 10 May 2019  |  


The next Rural Forum will take place in Annbank Primary School on Monday 20 May at 7pm. This is the second forum to run in South Ayrshire, following the successful event in Crosshill earlier in the year.

Discussion topics for this latest forum will include housing strategy which will look at issues such as affordable homes in rural locations, roads and road maintenance and the processes involved in planning and building control.

South Ayrshire Council set up the Rural Forum to ensure all residents can highlight issues that affect them, no matter where they live.

Lots of people choose homes in rural locations as there are many benefits but there are also challenges that those living in our larger towns don't experience.

The forum is an opportunity for people living in rural towns, villages and smaller communities to discuss issues important to them with Councillors and other decision makers.

Mark Baker, Service Lead for Corporate Planning and Improvement at South Ayrshire Council said: "We had a good turnout in Crosshill in March and I'm sure the Mossblown and Annbank Rural Forum will prove just as popular.

"Anyone living in or around Mossblown, Annbank is welcome to attend and we are also encouraging residents from other rural locations to pop along too. Councillors representing Kyle will be there as well as those representing Girvan and South Carrick and Maybole, North Carrick and Coylton.

"The opinions of people living in our rural communities are very important, these events ensure they are listened to and more importantly any issues they have are addressed."
