Office plan for Jed shop approved

A change of use application to convert a High Street shop in Jedburgh into an office has been approved, despite an objection from the community council over the loss of retail premises.

The planning officer stated: “Whilst it is regrettable that this change of use would result in the loss of a retail unit, the proposed change of use to Class 2 (office) would be consistent with the existing mix of town centre uses in this part of Jedburgh.”
