Tweedbank capitalises on the Borders Railway with a new masterplan
January 28 2020
Scottish Borders Council has presented its vision for the future of Tweedbank in draft documents designed to guide a new masterplan for the village.
Tweedbank – A Vision for Growth and Sustainability has been prepared by LUC in tandem with a Proctor & Matthews masterplan which outlines the allocation of 75,500sq/m of commercial space and 400 homes, all while safeguarding existing woodland.
Capitalising on the arrival of the Borders Railway the blueprint focusses on Station Square, the present terminus of the railway, with a vision for start-up business space, cafés and apartments as the hub of a greatly expanded community.
Councillor Mark Rowley said: “Alongside the exciting developments which the Council is currently driving at the Borders Innovation Park, I am confident that this high-quality guidance will help us to deliver a transformational range of homes, commercial premises and recreational opportunities which will deliver significant benefits for the whole of the Scottish Borders.”
The document will go before councillors for approval on Thursday, triggering a 12-week public consultation should it be approved.
