Borders village masterplan makes planning progress
Scottish Borders Council has granted Planning Permission in Principle (PPiP) for a mixed-use redevelopment of a historic auction mart to create a “new town centre” for Newtown St Boswells.
Working with H&H Group Plc and Cadell Properties, Michael Laird Architects’ expansion masterplan proposes a mix of retail, leisure and 150 homes as well as an overhaul of the mart itself whilst a new route into the mart removes livestock transport from the historic village centre.
The masterplan is also flexible to allow for the possible extension of the Borders Railway.
More detailed proposals will be brought back at a later date.
