Campaigners in the Borders are calling on councillors to reject controversial plans which would see a historic inn transformed into a block of flats.
Plans for the Crook Inn are again up for discussion
Planning officers have recommended approval for Inverwest Ltd's proposals at The Crook Inn in the Peeblesshire village of Tweedsmuir.
Opponents claim a proper attempt has not been made to sell the property at market value as a going concern.
The matter will be discussed at a council meeting in Peebles on Monday.
The Crook Inn was the oldest licensed pub in Scotland, dating back to 1604, but the bar shut a year ago and there have been no buyers.
The current owner wants to convert it into four flats and a house.
Campaigners believe efforts to secure its future have been seen it overpriced and under-marketed.
They have set up the Tweedsmuir Community Company aiming to buy the property and run it so that any profits could be put back into the local area.
Planning officers have given the flat development the go-ahead after examining the concerns and it will now be discussed by the Tweeddale area committee.
