A spokesperson for Galashiels-based Ferguson Planning, agent to the applicant, Mr L Becatelli, said: “The applicant has successfully established his business selling ice cream. However, he is keen to expand his offer to the benefit of the local culinary offering and employment opportunities.”

Outdoor pizza ovens would be located in the courtyard to the north of the site.

The spokesperson added: “Customers would order and collect from the existing counter in the shop.”
