The area around Tweedbank station represent a major opportunity to deliver a transformational and sustainable mixed use residential and commercial settlement adjacent to a variety of existing complimentary employment, leisure and tourist facilities. Taking full advantage of the new Borders Railway line, the Council are leading on a masterplan which will complement and strengthen links with the existing Tweedbank settlement and the station and will contribute towards the wider regeneration of Galashiels area and the Scottish Borders as a whole.

 Tweedbank will become a new neighbourhood and destination, occupying an attractive location on the River Tweed and at the gateway of the Edinburgh to Borders railway line. The proposals will create a new neighbourhood offering one of the best places in the Scottish Borders to live, to locate a business or to visit.  Tweedbank also offer an opportunity to broaden the central Border’s commercial offer with a range of potential new uses including high amenity office and business space within a Central Borders Business Park, consideration of a hotel and a supporting retail offer adjacent to the new station.
