Plans are being drawn up to build seven luxury apartments at Jedburgh’s high street.

Galashiels-based Angus Architecture has designed the development which would be in place of a gap site currently in the town centre.

The plans contain a mix of one and two-bedroom flats with an open plan kitchen and living area.

The four-storey building also contains a lift as well as a balconies at the rear for some of the flat.

In the past the site has been used for a mix of residential and commercial use.

Richard Gordon, chairman of Jedburgh Community Council, said: “My personal view is that this would be a very welcome development.

“It is good news that someone is willing to invest in Jedburgh town centre.

“I know some people would prefer a development of affordable housing on that particular site, but this scheme will fit well in the area and will greatly improve that part of Jedburgh High Street.

“I wish the project every success.”
