Each of the initial concepts takes into consideration the look and feel of the remaining historic platform building whilst also allowing for modern interpretations.

The community engagement event will allow locals to feedback on the draft plans and ask any questions they may have on the planned works.

Jo Noble, Network Rail sponsor for the redevelopment of the station said: “This is the first opportunity we have had to engage with the community in Troon and to bring forward initial proposals for the redevelopment of the platform station building destroyed by last year’s fire.

“We hope that people come along to see the initial proposals and to offer their views and ask any questions they may have about the work to reinstate the station building.

"We look forward to meeting everyone at the community drop-in on August 24."
