Time running out to have a say on council’s development plan

TERIES are being urged to have their say on the Local Development Plan.

The 12-week public consultation on the Main Issues Report (MIR), which gives people the opportunity to influence the direction of the plan, comes to a close on June 25.

The MIR sets out the direction for planning in the Borders for the next ten years and includes proposals for the future policy direction on matters such as housing, economy, retailing and green networks and green spaces. It also contains detailed site development proposals across the wider Borders area.
