Old run down buildings need to go.
Another issue that cropped up today in Hurlford was that of buildings left to rot and the council doing nothing about it.
I have heard residents of the community Council ask Councillors about the old man’s cabin in Hurlford many times, however as per everything, they say legal are checking it out, we don’t know who owns it and therefore cant do anything.
This is not good enough for the residents and it’s not good enough for me. The council has compulsory orders on buildings, they need to be used. The building you see in this article is on the main street as you go through Hurlford to head to the motorway. How would you feel if you seen this on a daily occurrence?
Councillors need to start working in the interest of the community and make the hard decision, however difficult they may be. I shall be speaking to the Council again about this building and should I be elected on the 3 of May I will be pushing for this building to be knocked down or redeveloped. Ensuring our towns and villages look good will help towards attracting businesses to the area and bringing in people to settle here in East Ayrshire.
For a shift in vision and an active Councillor vote Rob Murray 1 on May the 3rd.
