West Scotland MSP Jamie Greene has shared the “overwhelmingly positive” results of a survey he conducted for Largs residents exploring the possibility of a dog park in the town.

Largs resident Laura Crumlish previously contacted the Conservative MSP about how dogs in the town could benefit from a place to roam under the watchful eye of their owners.

In order to learn more about resident’s views on the proposals, Mr Greene launched an online survey of six questions and invited Largs residents to take part to give their opinions.

The results show that 77 per cent of respondents were in favour of a dog park with the remainder not in favour or with no preference either way.

Among those in favour, one resident said it would help “reduce the amount of dog muck on Largs streets” while another said a “secure area for the dogs to run would be very beneficial for owners.”

Jamie Greene said he was delighted by the positive responses and will be sharing them with North Ayrshire Council who he has been in contact with about the proposals.

He said: “I’d like to thank all the Largs residents who responded to my survey – I’m delighted by the overwhelmingly positive results!

“There is a clear appetite for a dog park in Largs which could increase the wellbeing of owners and their dogs, reduce waste on streets and make things easier for those less able to walk their dog.

“I will be sharing these results with the council and seeking an update on possible sites.”
