A NEW soft play centre could be coming to Largs after an application has been submitted.

Proposals have been made by Rebecchi Architectural on behalf of Leanna McCarthy to North Ayrshire Council to turn a vacant storefront at 144 Main Street into a children's soft play.

We previously reported that the former public house, The Sheiling, was set to be revived after new tenants were found. 

The Sheiling premises closed in the mid-2010s and despite efforts to revive it, the site has been lying empty for a number of years.

The landlords completed an overhaul in recent years ready for tenants to move in, and a new lease has finally been agreed.

In a supporting statement, which can be viewed publicly on the local authority's website, it stated that the soft play would be open seven days a week between 8.30am and 5.45pm.

It would also bring numerous jobs to the town if given the green light by the local authority.

It stated: "The proposal has not demonstrated provision for associated parking as the property is located on the main street of Largs in front of a T-junction, with no space for parking available on or off the road.

"However, the proposed soft play is intended to be primarily used by people living within the local area, being situated in the heart of Largs and near a local nursery."
