Community Council Ongoing Projects
Symington Wildflower Project
A significant amount of work has been done recently to investigate the feasibility of creating a wildflower verge at the entrance to Symington on Symington Road South. The Community Council is looking for feedback from the community regarding this.

Village Christmas Tree
July 2021 UPDATE
After discussions with Ayrshire Roads Alliance, it was agreed that the connection for power feed for the lights should go underground rather than direct from the street light pole. Due to this, additional funding is required. After numerous phone calls and emails, South Ayrshire Council have clarified and published their process for 2021 funding applications and the Community Council have now applied for the additional funds for installation of underground power connection.
We have been successful in securing funding from South Ayrshire Council to provide a Christmas Tree for the village. The preferred site is the grassed area at the junction of Main Street and Symington Road North. The ground has been prepared by SAC. We are now working with Ayrshire Roads Alliance to organise the electrical work required. When this has been completed we will be purchasing tree lights with the remainder of the Christmas Tree funding and booking our tree for next Christmas. Hopefully this will bring a little Christmas Cheer to the village.
The Community Council, following concerns raised by residents, continue to liaise with Ayrshire Roads Alliance regarding village traffic calming measures on the entry roads to the village. As a result of average speed cameras being temporary installed in 2019, ARA attended our CC meetings. It was reported by ARA that the worst areas of speed violations were Brewlands Road and Symington Road South. As a consequence ARA would initiate the process for the installation of traffic calming measures. ARA advised they would be seeking approval for traffic calming measures early 2021. It appears these things take time to implement. The CC will monitor and continue to keep you updated.
