CONSULTANTS have been undertaking a detailed structural survey of the hotel, which was due to complete by this week but is now scheduled for later this month.

Following completion of this survey which will identify the current condition of the building and identify defects, a further major piece of work will be undertaken to appraise the report and provide an analysis of condition and the issues identified.

It is anticipated that this report will be made available at the end of September 2019.

A spokesperson for South Ayrshire Council said: “The receipt of the report and then the estimated costs of fixing the building will conclude a considerable piece of work undertaken by the council and provide information for further discussions on the future of the building.”
