October 2019

We have been awarded grants of £67,700 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and £6,750 from the SBC Community Fund to help with the ‘Tweedsmuir Destination Development Project’.

This project will develop walks, signage, an online heritage guide, etc. to make Tweedsmuir a better place to live and to visit. 

We will appoint a Heritage Development Officer for 2 days a week until May 2021 who will co-ordinate the development and commission the specialist components and they will take the work already done by TCC working parties on the options for walking, cycling; our heritage in the landscape, history and economy and what should be provided in the Crook Inn Café. 

 

August 2019

We have received planning permission from Scottish Borders Council to:

  1. Develop a café in the old stable building and bring in services to the site.
  2. Demolish the staff quarters and rear flat roofed areas of The Crook Inn.
  3. Build a bunkhouse on the former staff quarter site.
  4. Develop a caravan and camping area to the rear of the site.

 

You can view the plans by visiting the SBC planning website and entering the following reference in the search box: 18/01342/FUL.

We have secured funding from Scottish Government Strengthening Communities Programme which has allowed us to commission Jura Consultants to undertake business planning and applications for development funding and to fund a community development officer to pursue aims of the community.

 

We are currently waiting on decisions on various applications to:-

  • The South of Scotland Economic Partnership (S0SEP).
  • Scottish Borders Council Community Fund.
  • Investing in Communities Fund.
  • Our local wind farms to provide co-funding.
