CASE ANNOUNCES SALE OF SUTHERLAND
WOOLLEN MILL BUILDING 22
The property was sold to EML for £610,000. The price achieved is in excess of HIE's current valuation of the building.
Commenting on the sale, Caithness and Sutherland Enterprise (CASE) chief executive Carroll Buxton said: "After a thorough marketing campaign and the closing date of 5th November, we reviewed the proposals received for the Sutherland Woollen Mill and are pleased to announce the sale of the property to a local business with significant expansion plans. "We believe that we have achieved a very good price for the property by placing it on the open market and we welcome this new era for the Mill building.
"EML is rapidly becoming a national specialist in windfarm development.
The purchase of this property will allow them to expand their operations
further and the move is likely to create new employment opportunities in
Brora. This development highlights South East Sutherland's potential to
emerge as a significant location in the renewables sector, which is likely
to have a positive impact on other businesses in the area."
