Following community conversations held in 2019 and 2020, a draft Place Plan for the town has been prepared. This sets out the findings of the earlier conversations and identifies a series of actions that could be undertaken to address the issues, making Girvan a better place to live, work and visit.
The draft plan can be viewed here.
We are currently inviting views from the local community on the contents of the plan. Please complete the questionnaire at the link below. The consultation is open up until the 30 April 2021.
The Place Plan should be a partnership plan that is led by the Community. It includes actions that depend on all parties with an active interest in Girvan for their success. In some cases an action might be best delivered with a community lead, or with the community taking a leadership position within a partnership. The Council has been working with local community groups in the preparation of the plan, and will continue with this as we move forward with the actions. If you would be interested in taking an active role in any of the actions identified in the plan, or are currently involved in a local project that is not included in the draft plan then please email Patrick.email@example.com
Girvan FC have a number of initiatives to help improve the health and well being of people in the community and Walking Football is one of them. It is a great way for men and women to:
– meet people
– have fun
– improve physical and mental well being
We already run twice weekly walking football sessions for men which prior to lockdown were very successful. We will be re-launching these. However we also want to launch Walking Football for Ladies of all ages. We are really keen to extend the benefits and fun to the ladies of South Carrick.
Please note that we are very keen that people of all the communities in the area to benefit from the fun and well being that these sessions provide hence my reason for writing to you all. Also, these sessions are open to people of all abilities – novices are most welcome.
SISG Charity, have been delivering a service for over 30 years to those older people with a sensory loss to help reduce Isolation and loneliness in Ayrshire with Sensory stations, support groups and Lip reading classes. Recently we secured the contract with the Ayrshire councils to expand our services throughout Ayrshire. Due to the pandemic we are presently unable to provide this service at the hubs, but in the meantime we are distributing sensory packs to older people in the community who may benefit from them whilst the services are suspended.
Proposed windfarm, 14 turbines to a tip height of 200 metres with associated infrastructure and battery storage.
Dailly Community Council want to make sure that the community is aware of what could potentially be built next door to the existing Hadyard Hill windfarm. We do not feel that the developer has consulted enough with the community.
A new access track for abnormal loads/HGVs will be made from opposite No.1 Eldinton Terrace, up towards Craig, around Hadyard Hill towards Delamford and then on to the Site.
The turbines will be located behind Balcamie, near Dobbingstone and Delamford.
From the Crosshill / Girvan B741 and B7035 you will see and probably hear the turbines.
