Tackling a village eyesore

1st April 2015


Ayrshire Housing has submitted a planning application for 4 new houses in the heart of the village of Dailly.  Three years ago, South Ayrshire Council took action to demolish the burnt out King’s Arms hotel. Following complex legal work, the association was able to finally acquire the site last year. The site is in a key location overlooking the bridge over the Water of Girvan.

Ayr based ARPL Architects have designed a scheme which is both sympathetic to its location and  will create adaptable and energy efficient homes. They are proposing two blocks, each with two 2 bedroom flats.

Dailly has no mains gas so a key part of the brief is to design and build houses with high levels of insulation and minimal space heating requirements.

Ayrshire Housing has consulted with the Dailly Community Council which is generally supportive of the proposal.
