A PLAN has been submitted the planning committee to extend Troon cemetery onto open space.

Proposed by South Ayrshire Council, they hope to extend the existing cemetery at Troon through developing an area of land adjacent to the existing cemetery.

The site, which is a trapezoidal in shape, is currently used as a council depot area with single story buildings to the south of the site being used to store machinery associated with the cemetery and the nearby golf course.

It is an area that is generally flat and level with areas of hard standing to the south west and well-maintained grass and mature trees covering the site.
