Lowood House near Melrose set for demolition

The Forth and Borders cases panel of the AHSS is concerned by plans to demolish Lowood House, near Melrose.

In the context of the planned expansion of Tweedbank village, Scottish Borders Council is considering a number of options for the Lowood House estate, which it is understood was acquired by it for £9.6 million in 2018.

Complete demolition is understood to be the preferred option.  Read local press coverage here and here.
