Kimberley Brewery Planning Brief

On 13th March 2007, the Council approved a planning brief for considering future planning proposals at the Kimberley Brewery. This followed the ceasing of brewery operations under the owners Greene King plc. The brief recognised the potential for some alternative development to employment but also ensured that the retention of employment opportunities within the site was a key issue.

The brief was intended to provide only broad planning guidelines. As the site lies within a Conservation Area, so permission would be required for any proposed demolition as well as new buildings.
