ALL SIGNS point to new leisure facilities for Girvan as a placard goes up at the harbourside site of the multi-faceted building.

The sign (pictured below left) declaring the deliverance of regeneration in Girvan and South Carrick appeared late last week, and had its official introduction yesterday.

It popped up just eight weeks after plans for the multi-faceted facility went on show to the public, when nearly 300 people headed to Girvan’s Carrick Buildings to have their say on the plans.

The sign proclaims: “South Ayrshire Council, South Carrick Community Leisure (SCCL) and the local community are working together to regenerate the area, enhance tourism and leisure opportunities and boost the local economy.

“This includes our planned new harbourside £8million leisure and community facility with swimming pool and fitness suite, community artsand culture space, acess to outdoor learning opportunities and quality catering.

“This will be complemented by other improvements throughout the area, ensuring a planned and co-ordinated approach to the regeneration of Girvan and South Carrick and creating a bright future for generations to come.”

SCCL chairman Andrew Sinclair said he was delighted to see the sign in place. “It is another step forward,” he said.

“It lets people know that things are happening and there is work going on in the background, which will all come to fruition in the next few weeks.”
