Housebuilders, Springfield Properties, were welcomed with positive feedback after plans for 57 affordable homes are shown to the public.

The 2.3ha development, just off Main Street East End, Chirnside, will see much needed 2, 3 & 4 bedroom affordable homes being constructed.

The location plan, along with a range of homes and information about the housebuilders, were on display at Chirnside Community hall last week.

Land Manager at Springfield Properties, Jim Ravey, was on hand to chat to locals interested in the plans. He said:

“Over the course of the day we around 40 visitors dropping in to gain a better appreciation of our proposals. This is brilliant turnout for a development of this size.

“There were lots of positive comments and it seems the local community are excited about the potential development. We are working towards submitting the plans to the Scottish Borders Council in the start of the new year.”
