The subjects are located to the south of Channel Street in Galashiels town centre.
Galashiels has a population of circa 14,000 and is one of the main towns in the Scottish Borders. It is generally considered to be the administrative, retail and social centre for the region, effectively serving a population of in excess of 110,000.
The town benefits from a significant student population with campuses of Heriot Watt University and Borders College within the town. Redevelopment works have recently been completed in the town centre with the development of two supermarkets in the Gala Water Retail Park to the east and further investments proposed to the local transport infrastructure including re-opening of the railway link to Edinburgh in September.
The subjects comprise a two storey terraced unit situated within a parade of nine similar units believed to date to the 1960s.
At the back of the building there is a communal tarmacadam car park ﾖ access to this is currently limited by concrete bollards. These could be removed and replaced with hinged lockable parking posts to enable this area to be utilised more effectively.
The front elevation of the building is faced in reconstituted stone with protruding box windows at first floor level and recessed shop frontage accessible via an arched arcade. Consent has been obtained for the shop to be brought forward in line with the frontage of the properties to the west, but this has not yet been implemented.
