Property News - Ayr scheme under scrutiny

South Ayrshire planning board is to decide in July on Henry Boot's proposals for a 18,580 sq m retail and leisure development in Ayr town centre. The scheme aims to bring retail warehouse-style units into the town centre, with 16 units ranging from 80 to 7,800 sq m linked by a central mall. Two department store operators have made offers for the anchor unit, and letting agents Culverwell and Springford & Co plan to select one by the end of this month.
