Galashiels meeting to discuss Borders’ largest housing development

A SPECIAL meeting will be held tomorrow to discuss a planning application for almost 400 homes in Galashiels.

Persimmon hope to build 397 houses in the second stage of its 500-home development at Easter Langlee.

The bid was considered by Galashiels Community Council earlier this month, with fears raised over school provision and traffic.

The meeting to discuss the plans further will be held in the Burgh Chambers at 7pm on Wednesday.
