Fresh plans have been lodged to build a new home in Muirkirk and demolition two current buildings at the site.

An initial application, lodged by JKM Consultancy, was withdrawn back in November after advice from East Ayrshire Council to submit a fresh bid.

The same company has now lodged fresh plans on behalf of the applicant that would see a home built on the corner of Main Street and Carruthers Park.

The project includes the demolition of the current house and the workshop space to the rear.

In its place, a new two-bedroom home with garden space and two parking spaces is planned.

A planning statement submitted along with the formal application said: "The site is currently occupied by a former garage office detached building and behind is a garage building.

"The site is not in a conservation area, nor are there any other historic environment constraints on the site or nearby.

"The site does not have any ecological importance due to its previous use as a commercial bus garage site.

"The proposed dwelling house is of a size and scale and design in general finish that is characterised with two mono-pitched roof elements that allow a vaulted ceiling with vertical emphasis to the fenestration.

"As a corner site, which extends mainly to the rear, with a commercial past, the proposed use for residential development, and the design, is considered to be an improvement on the existing structures that occupy the site."
