The HALO Kilmarnock gets the green light

The HALO, Kilmarnock’s £65m urban regeneration on the site of the former Johnnie Walker bottling plant, has been granted planning permission in principle from East Ayrshire Council.

At a special meeting of East Ayrshire Council’s planning committee, councillors agreed to grant planning permission in principle for The HALO, allowing the developers, HALO Kilmarnock Limited, to proceed to the submission of detailed plans for the development to East Ayrshire Council over the coming weeks.

Marie Macklin, The HALO’s founder, said: “This important community-led project has been eight years in the making and I am thrilled that we have reached this landmark today. We can now push forward with the development of The HALO, creating enterprise opportunities, not just for Kilmarnock, but for East Ayrshire and Scotland as a whole.”
