Councillors will travel to Dundonald to see the impact of a football pitch development that neighbours have described as a ‘nightmare’.Residents of the village queued up to voice their objections to the work undertaken at Dundonald Recreation Ground without planning permission.They told councillors on South Ayrshire’s Regulatory Panel that the work carried out by Dundonald Community, Sports, Recreation and Heritage Association (DCSRH) had led to flooding of their properties and impinged on their privacy.The group said it had spent more than £120,000 on the work, which included more than £30,000 funding from the council.Residents claimed that the amount of work which was carried out was substantially more than they had originally been told, including ‘no significant rise in ground levels’.Instead, they said, the level was raised by up to 1.4m, and meant that people could easily see into their properties from the park.DCSRH said it had been told that no planning permission was required and had already carried out much of the work when they were informed that they would have to make an application.Objectors told the panel that they had never had any issue with flooding prior to the work beginning.One objector said that the situation had been a ‘nightmare’ and added that he was concerned about the security of his property, due to the raising of ground levels, and that the flooding had left part of his house ‘off limits’ due to rising damp.Residents also thanked Councillor Julie Dettbarn who had intervened and got Ayrshire Roads Alliance involved.ARA eventually had to put down several hundred sandbags and then dig a ditch to prevent the water from inundating adjacent properties.Dundonald Community Council and Dundonald
