In early February 2024 we were delighted to present the Mossburn and Jedhart Distilleries development to the Planning and Building Standards Committee of Scottish Borders Council on behalf of Mossburn Distillers. The development includes two distilleries, a bottling plant, and extensive bonded warehousing on a site less than four miles south of Jedburgh.
Ruaraidh Thompson MRTPI and the rest of the team are thrilled that the Committee accepted officer recommendation and approved the application. The new consent removes unnecessary parts of one condition and restructures a second condition to allow for phased discharge. The decision creates the clarity required to progress the development towards initiation and ultimate delivery.
Both modified conditions are now being progressed towards discharge with a view to the construction phase starting on-site in the coming weeks. All the team look forward to completion and the new distilleries opening in the near future.
