Public Consultation for Troon Water Sports Centre

The plans for Troon Water Sports Centre have taken another step forward with the announcement of a public consultation event in the town. The team behind the project have confirmed that they are holding an information session in the town’s Walker Hall on Sunday 9th of April from 1pm – 4pm, putting their plans on display and giving short presentations at 2pm & 3.30pm.

The proposal for the £2m not-for-profit community facility first went public at a recent Troon Community Council meeting and now the project team want to give everyone in Troon and the surrounding area the chance to hear more about the ambitious project. Members of the group behind the project will be on hand to answer questions and talk members of the public through the plans.

With a design that includes workshop & maintenance facilities as well as space for training, it’s hoped the centre can become a hub for a wide range of water sports from dinghy sailing and windsurfing to sea kayaking and coastal rowing. Visitors to the consultation event will have the chance to see some of the boats from local clubs who hope to use the centre as a base in future.

Our main goal is to get more people out on the water, enjoying Troon’s fantastic coastline, which is why we’ve designed the building with space for training and coaching.

“This consultation event is a chance for people to hear more about the project and, most importantly, give us feedback. This is a community project and we want to hear people’s ideas and hopefully find some more people and organisations to get more involved in the project.”

All welcome
