Ayrshire Housing submit plans for Dailly homes
Ayrshire Housing has submitted a planning application to build 8 houses in the former mining village of Dailly designed by Austin-Smith:Lord.

Located on vacant land in the former SSHA estate, which the association now manages, the site is steeply sloping to the north west with fine views over the village to the hills to the north.

The architects brief was for two and three apartment single storey houses built to the Housing for Varying Needs ambulant disabled standard to complement the predominately large family housing in the village.

The house types have kitchen, hall and bathroom to the public side with living room and bedroom(s) to the private side and are sited to take advantage of the views. Kitchens are open plan to the living rooms allowing south light into the living space where the living rooms have a northerly aspect.

Car parking, public access paths and patios will all be block paved with the soft landscaped areas planted with ground covering and shrubs. Each house will have a small patio in a communally maintained landscape.

Walls and roofs will be heavily insulated to compensate for use of electrical heating systems, no gas being available in the village.
