The application to change the use of Unit 3 was approved at a meeting of the planning committee on Tuesday (June 8).

Run by The Horsham Brewery Co Ltd, the microbrewery will include a shop and tap room/tasting area.

The application was only put to the committee because the council owns the land involved and it was dealt with swiftly.

Stuart Ritchie (Con,  Itchingfield, Slinfold & Warnham) said: “Given there’s such a strong tradition of brewing in Horsham and this district, I recommend this for approval wholeheartedly.”
