PROPOSED BREWERY

Location Biggar Type Brewing

This project was an exciting Change of Use from a Museum to Micro-brewery, Restaurant & Bar. Widely supported the project also had its critics and the applicant unfortunately withdrew both Planning and LBC applications. Whilst we do not normally advertise the unfortunate withdrawals of such applications we felt it was important in this case to note the circumstances. The applicant was fiercely behind the project as were we. Community consultations were held and council officers at technical assessment level were working positively with us on the application process. Unfortunately unsubstantiated claims that councillors made grossly inappropriate comments regarding the future licensing position if planning were granted caused the applicant to withdraw Planning and LBC. This is not and should not be part of the democratic process. Hopefully we can post images in the future of the approved and constructed scheme, wherever that ends up being.
