Location
These premises are located at Tweedside Park within Tweedbank Industrial Estate, a strategic location approximately one mile to the east of Galashiels. A new link road and footpath is currently under construction connecting this section of the estate directly to Tweedbank Station, the Southern Terminus of the Borders Railway just 200 m to the West.

Tweedbank is a planned new village which was established in the 1970s. The village is characterised by cluster developments along Tweedbank Drive, its central spine road. It was been planned with a distinct layout with the residential element to the west and the Industrial Estate to the east. Within the core of the residential section there is a village centre with facilities including a primary school, convenience store, hair salon, Public house with restaurant and office building currently occupied by Scottish Government Rural Payments and Inspectorates Directorate, as well as a park and man-made ‘loch’.

Within recent years there has been a significant expansion to the village with the completion of the Weavers Linn housing development to the south. According to the 2011 population census the population is 2,101 representing an increase of nearly 22% above the 2011 census population of 1,716.

Following establishment of the Borders Railway in 2015 the area has been earmarked as a strategic development location with much of the land at Lowood to the South now earmarked for housing, a new office development currently under construction on the site to the immediate west and a ‘gateway’ development at the east entrance off Melrose Roundabout by New Land Assets reported to be anchored by a BP filling station with Marks and Spencer Kiosk, drive through Costa Coffee Shop and a 71 Bedroom Premier Inn.

The settlement is well situated within the Central Borders benefitting from good access to the national roads network to the A68 trunk road and A7 arterial route via the A6091 trunk road (Melrose Bypass) via roundabouts to each end of the village.

Tweedbank Industrial Estate’s central position means that it is within a ten minute drive time of the core population concentration within the Central Borders including Galashiels, Selkirk, Melrose, Tweedbank, Earlston, Newtown St Boswells and St Boswells.

The Tweedbank industrial area is one of the principal business parks within the Scottish Borders. Existing occupiers in the immediate vicinity include Radio Borders, Stewart Technology, Scottish Executive Public Pensions Agency and Ashwood UK.
