Plans have been submitted to create a new 'holiday let' in Mauchline.

The proposals, lodged with East Ayrshire Council by a Mr William Clint, seek to transform a building to the rear of 19 Station Road into a self-catering holiday let.

Details are light, but a floor plan shows one bedroom, a living area, kitchen area and shower room for the holiday let.

An initial deadline for the public to have a say on the plans has been set for October 14, with a determination deadline set for November 11.

Environmental health had been consulted on the plans and, while they didn't object to them, they said that certain factors would have to be taken into account for the plans.

They said: "When in use, the property should not give rise to the audible noise within the curtilage of any nearby property, and outdoor activities (including ue of the hot tub facility) at the property should be restricted to between the hours of 9am to 9pm seven days a week.

"Notwithstanding any restrictions imposed by granted consent, the Environmental Health Service reserves the right to investigate any complaitns of noise from the property and to secure abatement action by enforcement if necessary.

"All interior and exterior lighting at the property should be so installed as to prevent any direct light spill onto nearby properties in order to preserve residential amenity."
