South Carrick Villages Place Planning

October 26, 2021by DaillyParishCommunity News

South Carrick Villages Place Planning

We are keen to work with communities and partners across South Carrick to develop Local Place Plans for the Villages. The Place Plans are partnership plans that are led by the community, and should include actions that have been highlighted as part of the consultation.

To help us identify the opportunities and challenges that are present in the villages we need the help of those who live, work or take part in activities in these communities.   Our officers will be reaching out to groups and organisations across South Carrick over the next six weeks and we are keen to facilitate face to face sessions using the Place Standard Toolkit.

We have also created an online questionnaire Complete the questionnaire to complete the Place Standard for any of the villages in South Carrick. The closing date is the 12th November 2021.

Place Planning

South Ayrshire Council are preparing further ‘Place Plans’, this time for the South Carrick villages, as part of their Thriving Places project. If you live or work in any of these communities, they would like to hear your views and ideas for the future.  The consultations close on Friday 12 November and you can take part here.   

Baby Loss Awareness Week (BLAW)

Next week (8 to 15 October) is Baby Loss Awareness Week (BLAW), when people world-wide acknowledge the scale and impact of pregnancy and baby loss.  We’ll be showing our support by taking part in the ‘Wave of Light’ when we illuminate The Wallace Tower in blue and pink as the week comes to a close on the evening of Friday 15 October. If you would like to find out about the support offered by the BLAW Alliance you can do so by visiting their website.  

British Red Cross

The British Red Cross recently launched their new service, ‘Connecting with You’, which offers support to anyone experiencing issues associated with loneliness.  The service may be especially suitable for people on the highest risk list (previously the COVID-19 shielding list) who call the National Assistance Helpline or Local Authority helplines. The support offered can be tailored to individual needs and could include weekly phone calls; online support; in-person meetings; support with getting into new or old hobbies and interests; and help with meeting new people or getting back in touch with old friends.  ‘Connecting With You’ is available to all people aged 18 or over in Scotland and be accessed online or by phone on 07709 502127 (Monday to Friday between 10.00 am and 4.00 pm).

The Ayrshire Hospice

The Ayrshire Hospice are looking for new trustees.  This essential local facility provides specialist palliative care and services to people affected by life-limiting illness across Ayrshire. The hospice not only takes care of people’s physical needs – they also look after their emotional, spiritual and social needs too. Now in its fourth decade and set to embark on a transformational upgrade of its core facilities, there’s never been a more exciting time to join the Ayrshire Hospice team.  If you’d like to find out more please visit the hospice’s Trustee Microsite.

Fire and Smoke Alarms – changes to the law
Every home in Scotland must have interlinked fire alarms by February 2022. These can be either mains-wired or tamper-proof battery alarms.­Being interlinked means if one alarm goes off, they all go off. You may not always hear the alarm closest to the fire, especially if you’re somewhere else in the house. An interlinked system will alert you immediately.

Please see information for home owners, tenants (private), tenants (public sector and council) and fire safety for new build homes at: Make sure your home is fire safe – mygov.scot
