Outline plans to build a five-bedroom house in Catrine have been approved by planners.

Plans were lodged with East Ayrshire Council to build the home on vacant land between 22 and 24 St Cuthbert's Street.

According to the application from Ms Linda Warmington-Smith, the proposed site for the house was recently a three-storey home with a garden to the rear.

The home would also include three bathrooms, a large lounge area, a dining room and kitchen with a utility room.

EAC officials have given planning permission in principle (PPP) for the plans with conditions, despite some Historic Environment Scotland (HES) concerns.

In its response to the application, HES said said "We have assessed it for our historic environment interests and consider that the proposals have the potential to affect the following: Catrine, water works for Catrine Mill 30 metres south of 9 St Cuthbert's Street Scheduled Monument.

"You should also seek advice from your archaeology and conservation service for matters including unscheduled archaeology and category B and C-listed buildings"

Scottish Water did not have any objections to the plans.

A detailed application must now be submitted to East Ayrshire Council within three years addressing issues such as full access arrangements, car parking provisions and the exact sizing of the proposed home.
