Work to build a new all-weather pitch at Carrick Academy will start soon.

This is the first of two all-weather pitches planned as part of South Ayrshire Council's £50 million Maybole Community Campus.

As well as the new pitch, our enabling works will also include the diversion of underground services and erecting hoarding to secure the main site in advance of work commencing later this year.

That's not all pupils and the local community can look forward to when the campus is complete, as the facility will also boast games halls, gyms and a fantastic new swimming pool.

Councillor William Grant, Children and Young People Portfolio Holder for the Council said: "It's great news for the school and the wider community that we can start work on delivering one of the new all-weather pitches early. We all know how important exercise is for good health and wellbeing, and our ambition is that the campus becomes a hub for locals, helping them to grow well, live well and age well."

The new campus which will have capacity for 1,370 pupils, is set to open in 2023 and the remaining demolition and external works will continue until the end of that year.
