A VACANT bank in a Borders town could be getting transformed into a new restaurant.

Glasgow-based Sava Estates Limited has submitted a planning application to Scottish Borders Council in a bid to convert the former TSB branch on Peebles' High Street into a "quality restaurant".

According to the application, the restaurant’s opening hours would be 10am-11pm from Sunday until Thursday, with Fridays and Saturdays being 10am-midnight.

The building has been empty since March 2020.

It was closed at the start of the first coronavirus lockdown, alongside the branches in Kelso and Hawick.
