WORK to rejuvenate Eyemouth’s old town hall could soon be in the pipeline, councillors were informed this week.

An open question was posed at a meeting of Scottish Borders Council (SBC) on the future of the building by East Berwickshire councillor James Anderson.

He said: “Can the department look at the viability of a project to rejuvenate the old town hall in Eyemouth and its frontage, the former SBC contact office, as part of the next stage of Levelling Up funding bid being worked on at the moment?”

In response, Jedburgh councillor Scott Hamilton, the council’s executive member for community and business development, said: “Eyemouth is one of four priority towns that have been identified for investment as part of the Borderlands Growth Deal and work is progressing to support the development of a town team and the development of a Place Plan.

“If the development of the old town hall is identified as a potential priority project by the community as part of this work council officers and our partners would look to support the community to develop a project to examine the viability of rejuvenating the town hall.”
