Central Borders Business Park SG/ SPZ

We are aiming to capitalise on the opportunities brought by the Borders Railway by maximising the potential of business and industrial land at Tweedbank.  As part of this work we are producing Supplementary Guidance to guide the restructuring of the industrial estate and creating a Simplified Planning Zone Scheme to encourage investment.
