Ayrshire Housing consults on latest development proposal
The current lockdown has not stopped Ayrshire Housing from consulting the public on its latest housing proposal to build a further 13 houses in the village of Kirkmichael.
The Association was delighted to partner with the co-operatively run village shop in the distribution of the consultation booklet and in the collection of comments. This has been backed up by both organisations’ social media.
Director Jim Whiston and architect Andrew Hunter were able also to present their proposals to the Community Council through a Zoom event.
Jim Whiston said: “We are delighted with the response to our consultation. We will take on board the comments received as we prepare the planning application. Whilst we are using digital communication out of adversity at the moment, it’s more positively giving us ideas as to how we can communicate with our communities across Ayrshire in the long term.”
The proposed development consists of one, two and three-bedroom houses which meet the requirements of the Association’s new Design Guide for adaptable and energy efficient housing. It is being designed by Thomson Hunter Architects of Kilmarnock which has already designed the very popular scheme adjacent to the current site.
