Crook conversion objections made
Crook Inn
Plans have been lodged to convert the hotel into housing
Nearly 40 objection letters have been lodged with Scottish Borders Council against plans to convert the Crook Inn in Tweedsmuir into housing.

Proposals have been submitted by the hotel's owner to turn the site into four flats and a house.

Campaigners have vowed to stop the closure of the 400-year-old inn which they claim is a vital facility.

The planning application is scheduled to be heard by the Tweeddale Area Committee on 29 January.
