Plans for Dalquharran Estate are given the go-ahead

Plans which will see 60 houses built at the Dalquharran Estate in Dailly have been approved by South Ayrshire Council’s regulatory panel.

The application related to plans for a golf course at the estate, for which a footbridge has already been built.

Occupation of the dwelling houses will be related to membership of the golf course and five time share houses will also be built at the estate which relate to a proposed hotel.

Councillors did seek assurances that concerns from both the Coal Authority and the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency over the mining legacy and the drainage arrangements at the property would be taken on board.

Plans for the estate have a long and complex history with £27m initially being given in 1990 to redevelop the estate but little progress has been made over the last two decades.
