Distillery to gain storage

Drivers Jonas has secured planning permission for new warehouses at the distillery in Tomatin, near Inverness.

Tomatin Distillery returned to the consultancy for further advice after the firm carried out a review of its estate to boost its value.

Drivers Jonas also successfully argued during the Inverness local plan review that further distillery-related development is acceptable. Planning and development associate Steven Cameron said: "Commissions such as this are an acknowledgement of our good client care."

The 2,000m2 of bonded warehouses, for storing whisky on which duties have yet to be paid, won permission from Highland Council planning officers under delegated powers because the development was not contentious. The one condition was that the distillery submit a landscaping scheme, which will be drawn up by Drivers Jonas.
