Plans for upgrades to a camping site near Auchinleck have been submitted to East Ayrshire Council.

Lighthouse Architecture has taken on the proposal on behalf of Hillend Camping owners Lauren Houfe and Aaron Hay.

Plans for upgrades at the site were approved back in November but the latest application is a revision of the initial proposal.

The new application would see further additions to the Hillend Camping site, which is a non-electric, pop-up campsite just outside Auchinleck.

The site currently has four camping pitches to go along with its hot water and washing-up facilities. They also offer spaces for non-electric motorhomes and grass campervan pitches.

According to a planning statement attached to the submission, "this proposed (revised) application includes a series of elements across the site", including two new shepherd huts.

It adds: "For use of motorhomes and campsite there will be an onsite shower block which provides hot showers and sanitary.

"Waste will run off to the proposed sewage treatment plant, a waste tank will be installed for the use of motorhomes on site.

"To allow for additional motor homes to be located the proposal is to allow for a hardstanding providing access to 8 motor homes.

"Grassed areas will be retained adjacent to motor homes allowing for parking of any vehicles.

"To allow for separation between both motor homes and camping we have proposed an area of hedge planting which will create a screen and provide an informal boundary."
