An area for motorhome parking at the rear of the Auchrannie Spa resort building in Brodick has been approved.
North Ayrshire Council has given planning permission to utilise the existing car park for overnight parking for up eight motorhomes.
In a supporting statement David Johnston, director of Auchrannie Leisure Ltd, told planners: ‘Having seen the number of motorhomes visiting Arran in recent years, and the very limited facilities for parking and disposal of waste on the island, we feel there is an opportunity to use an under-utilised parking area.
‘We propose to use an existing car park to allow parking for up to eight motorhomes overnight. We will provide access to power and waste disposal facilities, including foul water, on site.
‘With the facilities and services on offer within the resort, we can allow visitors an option to benefit from use of our restaurants, leisure facilities, spa and existing toilets and showers. We would charge an overnight fee with options for add-on services.’
One of the conditions is that Auchrannie will have to screening to the west site boundary which is overlooked by a neighbouring garden.
