Plans to build 23 new homes on grounds of Dunlop Manor revealed
Plans to build 23 new houses at Dunlop Manor have been submitted to East Ayrshire Council.
Planning permission was previously approved in 2015, with an amendment made three years later to address wildlife issues.
However, the new application by Ogilvie Homes maintains the layout of the previous scheme.
But, the footprint of the houses has been reduced. There would be a mix of four and five-bedroom detached villas.
The development comprises of around 17 acres and is located within the grounds of Dunlop Manor and Country Estate, The Daily Record reports.
In its statement, the developers say: “The finalised site design and plot layout reflects exactly that of the development (previously approved).
“The site poses a number of challenges and opportunities, not least the sloping topography to the west which requires a degree of engineering works in order to create the type of housing called for today’s market.
“This has led to a design which works closely with the existing topography, creating a distinctive streetscape.”
