Morebattle housing plan in pipeline

MOREBATTLE could see 29 homes built at the western end of the village.

A planning brief approved by Scottish Borders Council’s planning committee highlights two adjacent greenfield sites at Renwick and West Renwick Gardens that could be developed.

The document says the design of any new estate would have to reflect the character and size of the nearby traditional houses.

Villagers will now have three months to comment on the brief.
