Plans to transform a vacant space in Auchinleck into two new flats have been withdrawn.

Objections had been made following ATW Chartered Architects' submission of plans to East Ayrshire Council to transform the vacant space to the rear of Auchinleck Post Office on Main Street.

According to the plans, the most recent use of the site has been abandoned warehouse that hasn't been in use for a number of years.

However, as part of an objection from nearby business Alexander Muir Funeral Directors, they say that the land is currently vacant and has been for a number of years.

Alexander Muir Funeral Directors also added that there there could be "disturbing" revelations to the plans.

This was due to the funeral directors bringing deceased bodies into their premises, which could be seen by the planned flats.

It was added that a photo submitted with the plans could have been "at least 10 years old".

A further objection to the plans was also provided, citing noise pollution, parking access and sewage issues as potential problems.

Following on from the objections, the application has since been withdrawn from consideration, as requested by the applicant.
