AN application has been made to remove all traces of the Royal Bank of Scotland in Troon, after its closure.

As a listed building in a conservation area, the planning process is different from standard applications made to local authorities.

It is proposed to remove the Royal Bank sign and ATM after the bank's closure in October with brickwork installed in the gap, which matches the existing building.

South Ayrshire Council planning committee will consider the proposal after the summer recess.

Elsewhere in the town and also pending consideration is an application to change the use of land at Dukes Road.

It is proposed to install a car wash facility, including equipment and storage containers at the site, near Morrisons supermarket.

One resident of Union Street has registered an objection, saying there is already an established car wash in the area, and 'enough noise and traffic'. 

In support of the proposal the site owner has said the land is overgrown with weeds and the plan is to clear the ground and concrete it.

This would allow for a drainage system and enable vehicles to get washed and valeted.
