Plans to turn Wynd Theatre into an art gallery are being backed by Scottish Borders Council

7th September 2015

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in Border Telegraph.

Plans to turn Melrose’s only designated theatre into an art gallery are being backed by Scottish Borders Council.

A total of 12 objections to the change-of-use application were tabled.

Amongst the protesters were The Theatres Trust. A spokesman said: “Though the Trust recognises the importance of investment and regeneration in town centres, where a new use is proposed for a former community or cultural facility, the Trust always advises the local authority that it must be satisfied the building is surplus to the cultural requirements of the local community before granting the new use.”
