PLANS have been submitted to Scottish Borders Council to convert a town centre building into a residential home. 

The building, at 10-12 Market Place in Selkirk, is currently used as a storage facility by the Lindsay and Gilmour Pharmacy which borders the building. 

Edinburgh-based Raimes, Clark and Co. Limited, which owns the Lindsay and Gilmour brand alongside Red Band Chemical Co. Limited, is planning on converting the building into two-storey home. 

The conversion, which is being designed by ABC Architecture, also of Edinburgh, will feature two bedrooms, set in an attic conversion, with downstairs lounge, kitchen and bathroom areas. 

The pharmacy’s owners have applied for a change of use, from a store to a residential property, meaning that Selkirk’s Market Place may be about to lose another commercial property.
