I am delighted that the plans for a micro-brewery, distillery and tourist centre has been given the green light by Inverclyde council.
The developers have been good enough to share their vision for this site with me and I applaud their professionalism. They have engaged with the local community at every stage and I expect they will continue to do so.
Hopefully this can be a springboard for the rest of the Spango Valley and we can take more steps towards reenergising the valley and returning it to something like its heyday when IBM were such an important employer in that area. With the right investment and the right people this could be the catalyst for greater things for Inverclyde.
