The new flats would be accessed from the existing communal entrance and access stairwell off Hide Hill, which also provides access to the rear of the property.

Galashiels-based Camerons Ltd states: ‘With the upper floors of this existing commercial property having lain vacant for a considerable period of time and starting to deteriorate, the applicant believes that the re-classification of the upper floors to residential usage will provide an opportunity to bring these floors back into use.’

Berwick Town Council has made no objection.
