Green light for 25 social homes in Tarbolton
Councillors have granted planning permission for an application to build 25 social homes in Tarbolton.
The plans, which are part of a wider development, relate to a parcel of land at the Croft Street and the Westport area of the village. Behind the proposals are Hayhill Developments Ltd, of Mauchline, and the agents in the venture are Glasgow-based GD Lodge Architects LLP.
Once built, the homes will be transferred to a Registered Social landlord (RSL) and the preferred RSL is Ayrshire Housing Association.
In its design statement, GD Lodge Architects said the overall site was granted “full planning permission” by South Ayrshire Council for 90 houses in September 2022.
However, the current application relates solely to the area of the site “reserved for affordable housing”.
A “variety” of house types have been selected by Ayrshire Housing to “address the current need” for affordable housing in Tarbolton. These range from two-bedroom bungalows to four-bedroom semi-detached villas, including one house specifically designed for wheelchair use.
