United Kingdom: Scotland’s First Deep Geothermal District Heating System Gets Planning Permission

HALO Kilmarnock given outline planning permission (

2km deep well for Scotland’s first deep geothermal district heating system to be drilled this year 

The Halo, Kilmarnock's £65 million urban regeneration programme, has been granted planning permission in principle by East Ayrshire Council.

The regeneration of the former Johnnie Walker whisky bottling plant site is intended as a major shot in the arm for the economy of the town and the wider East Ayrshire economy.

Councillors agreed to grant planning permission at a special meeting of the East Ayrshire Council Planning Committee.

This will allow the development company Halo Kilmarnock Ltd to move to producing and submitting detailed plans for the development to the Council over the coming weeks.
