Planners are expected to recommend the refusal of an application to build a new ambulance station at the Borders General Hospital.
The Scottish Ambulance Service want to close down their Galashiels depot and build a new depot at the hospital to serve the central Borders
The new build will be discussed at a meeting of Scottish Borders Councils planning and development committee.
Planning officials are recommending refusal of the application after submissions from the council's landscape and roads departments.
The Scottish Ambulance Service say a depot at the hospital would allow them to reach more emergency locations within the eight minute standard than they can achieve now from Galashiels.
