SCOTTISH Borders Council is holding two community engagement sessions to give the local community and other interested stakeholders the opportunity to have their say on outline plans for the new Tweedbank Care Village.

The development is currently at the pre-planning stage and as part of that, the following drop-in sessions have been arranged to give people the chance to provide feedback prior to the plans being formally submitted to the Council in October: Monday September 4, 4-8pm and Monday September 25, 4-8pm.

Members of the project team will be available to provide an update on progress generally and answer any questions that attendees may have.
