KILWINNING residents are being consulted on their views after community councillors agreed to take action on cars illegally using the main street.

Community representatives hope to completely close off Kilwinning Main Street to traffic during the day.

Kilwinning Community Councillors voted in January month to write to the town’s Locality Partnership to take action on cars illegally using the Main Street.

This was after further complaints during their January meeting, with Police Sergeant Allen Dodds saying if no cars were allowed at all that would solve it.

Secretary Jim Watson proposed they write to Kilwinning Locality Partnership requesting Main Street be closed to traffic in weekdays during the day – which was passed after a vote.

He added: “I have been on this community council for 13 years and I am sick of hearing about the Main Street.”

Now Kilwinning Locality Partnership are looking to gather the thoughts of Kilwinning residents on the possibility of closing off the main street to ALL vehicles at particular times.

The survey closes on Sunday, March 29. Fill it in at
