A plan to turn a ‘builder’s yard’ into commercial kennels has been lodged with East Ayrshire Council.
The applicant, Mrs. Willamena Brown has already started working on the project.
In documents submitted to local authorities, Ms Brown’s agent, Stephen McQuistin, insisted his client, who lives on Irvine’s Livingston Terrace, “was not aware that planning permission was required” for development.
The 2,200m² site is currently listed as a construction site just off Brown Street in Newmilns, sandwiched between a power distribution site and a factory.
But Ms Brown wants to turn the site into a “commercial kennel for breeding dogs”.
Barking and isolation kennels part of the plans, as well as waiting and “normal” kennels.
