Decision deferred on inn housing
Crook Inn
Plans for the Crook Inn will now be decided in January
Councillors have deferred a decision on plans to convert a historic Borders inn to housing.

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.
