Housebuilders tipped to show interest in ex-distillery site in Alloa

PROPERTY firm JLL has revealed that almost 400 new homes could be built on the site of a former distillery in Alloa after it was put up for sale with planning allocation for residential development.

The Carsebridge Distillery, which stopped producing whisky in 1983, has been put up for sale by Diageo. 76.5 acres of land is available as part of the deal, the majority of which has already been earmarked for residential development within the Clackmannanshire Local Development Plan.

JLL is marketing the land for Diageo with joint agent Raymond Dunn of RJ Dunn Property Consultancy. JLL said it expects “significant housebuilder interest” in the site.

Angela White, director at JLL said, “This is a rare opportunity to develop a vibrant new neighbourhood in an attractive part of Scotland’s central belt. There has been growing demand for building additional, high quality homes in Alloa – which has a range of draws, including retail and leisure pursuits and services including state-of-the-art facilities such as the Speirs Centre and Clackmannanshire Community Healthcare Centre. There are also four primary schools and two secondary schools within the town. We look forward to seeing the inspiring visions put forward for the site by a range of housebuilders and developers.”
