Plans are progressing to build a new inclusive cycle path in Dalmellington.

East Ayrshire Council Cabinet has been recommended to agree to a 25-year lease with Dalmellington Parish Development Trust (DPDT) which see the path built.

DPDT is hoping to create the path on land near to Craigmark Burtonians' Station Park.

Bosses are suggesting that plans are moved ahead with the lease, which would cost an annual rental price of £1.

The report states that "completion of the lease will be held until all external funds for the development have been confirmed".

It added: "The DPDT have ambitions to create an Inclusive Cycle Track within the area and are working closely with Ayrshire Roads Alliance in relation to parking, roads and connectivity to the Dalmellington Active Travel Network.

"Successful completion of the proposal will provide further inclusive amenities within the locality, increasing active travel options, providing employment opportunities and, it is anticipated, increasing the footfall within the community."
