Plans to build a new home on vacant land in Lugar have been withdrawn.

An application from Axiom Design Services had been submitted to East Ayrshire Council to build the one-bedroom home in the village.

The new home would have been positioned on the junction between Peesweep Brae and Muirkirk Road.

Space for two garden areas, a detached garage block and driveway were also included in the proposals.

Ayrshire Roads Alliance and Scottish Water both had no initial objections to the plans.

He said: "I am extremely concerned about water coming from the field above the proposed site and the water coming down the Peesweep Brae into my property.

"I am also concerned about the house not being in line with the rest of the houses in Park Terrace.

"[I'm] Also concerned about the type of brick and slate to be used on the proposed house.

"[I'm] Also concerned about the house level and roof height coinciding with the rest of the houses in park terrace.

"Is the existing metal fencing going to continue along the back of the proposed site to the electric sub station?"

A decision was made this week to withdraw the plans from consideration.
