Plans for a controversial six million pound scheme to permanently house the Great Tapestry of Scotland in the Scottish Borders have been approved.
Scottish Borders Council granted planning permission today for a two-storey building for the tapestry at Tweedbank.
The authority is contributing three and a half million pounds to the project which councillors say will boost tourism.
Last week a petition signed by thousands, urging the council to drop its financial support, was rejected.
