A town centre regeneration scheme has been launched in Jedburgh.

The £1.3m project, funded by Historic Environment Scotland’s CARS programme, Scottish Borders Council and private sector contributions, will support town centre conservation and regeneration over the next five years.

The Jedburgh Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) was launched in the town on Tuesday.

The money is being spent on repairs as well as a wide range of training, heritage and education activities.

A traditional building repair grant scheme will also operate in the town with applications for traditional building repairs accepted in a series of rounds.

“The formal launch of this project marks the start of a five year project which we hope will help restore and protect some of the town’s key historic buildings and revitalise the centre of what is one of the gateway towns to Scotland.
