Orbit Beers, Taproom

Hotel & Leisure , Small Scale and Permitted Development

Firstplan secured planning permission for Orbit Beers to expand its micro-brewery in Walworth and create an on-site taproom and beer garden.

Firstplan led negotiations with London Borough of Southwark Council, including a pre-application advice request and an application for the expansion of the brewery and change of use part of the site from industrial (Class B2) to bar (Class A4) land use.

The taproom and beer garden now provides a space for Orbit Beers to showcase the beers brewed on site, and a fantastic venue for the local community.

Firstplan’s instruction also included the preparation of an Operational Management Plan for the taproom and beer garden to ensure that this would not be disturbing to the surrounding area.

Firstplan has further secured planning permission for Orbit Beers for commercial plant equipment associated with its brewing operations.
