Councillors have deferred a decision on plans to convert a historic Borders inn to housing.
Plans for the Crook Inn will now be decided in January
Inverwest Ltd had sought permission for its plans for The Crook Inn in the Peeblesshire village of Tweedsmuir.
Opponents to the proposal claimed a key condition - to try to sell the property as a going concern at market value - had not been met.
Planning officials had recommended approval but Tweeddale Area Committee delayed a decision until January.
