Plans have been approved for changes to be made to a petrol station in Auchinleck.

Proposals were submitted to East Ayrshire Council earlier this year on behalf of MFG Jet Auchinleck, formerly Bridgend Garage.

The owners of the Jet service station on Main Street plan to install eight electric vehicle (EV) charge points, as well as new jetwash bays.

Plans are also set to see the former workshop attached to the retail shop demolished to make way for the EV chargers and a new canopy.

It will also be replaced with the current washing machines that are placed elsewhere.

The chargers are also set to be located to the rear of the retail shop, along with the two new proposed wash bays.

The air and water machines, as well as the vacuum, would be relocated alongside the fencing closest to the nearby woodlands - where they have been placed in the past.

Amazon lockers currently placed at the front of the vacant workshop are due to be moved to the opposite side of the shop.

These plans are alongside a previously-approved bid to have the height of the forecourt canopy increased, to stop HGVs regularly hitting and damaging the existing structure.

EAC officials approved the application - but dismissed an attempt by the Ayrshire Roads Alliance (ARA) to add a condition to the plans which would have banned HGVs from reversing out of the station.

ARA again objected to the new plans, again citing issues with HGVs reversing out of the forecourt onto the Main Street.

An environmental health statement added that noisy work on the site during construction should be restricted to 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 1pm on a Saturday, and no noisy work on a Sunday.

Conditions state that development must begin within three years.
