By-pass plans take step forward

Plans for a Maybole Bypass have taken another step forward.

Peter Mason, chair of Maybole Bypass committee told the Carrick Community Councils’ Forum at its meeting last week that proposals for the bypass had moved into the Technical Design phase.

He also added that some basic preliminary work had also recently been agreed upon for the scheme.

Peter said: “This is great news. The current preliminary work is just another little step.

“But the fact that these proposals have moved onto the next development phase makes the whole idea of a bypass more real.”

At the meeting of the Forum, Peter also highlighted two projects currently underway in Maybole. The Maybole Pathfinder Project was exploring possible transfer of local amenities to community ownership and the Community Assets project would give people in Maybole the chance to comment on how they want to see the area developing over coming years.
