Co-op store Cross Street, Galston

East Ayrshire Council has today, Friday 21 April, been notified by the Co-op that they are prepared to agree to the termination of the lease for their Cross Street Galston store.

The serious safety issues with the building have been made clear since the closure, and the Co-op’s decision will now allow demolition work to commence at an early opportunity.

The Council also welcomes the Co-op’s commitment to establishing a Post Office in the Polwarth Street store, as it is recognised that the loss of this facility has been a significant issue to the residents of Galston.

The Council will continue to work with all parties to ensure an acceptable outcome for Galston.
