On an 81% turnout, 86% of residents backed proposals for regenerating the Teviot estate with new homes, new green and play spaces, shops, community and faith facilities, and improved infrastructure.
An independent ballot of 617 eligible Teviot residents was conducted by Electoral Reform Services.
Since the ballot, consultation with the Residents’ Steering Group (RSG) and the local community has been ongoing, with residents contributing to the scheme’s procurement and designs.
You can find details on what people are telling us on Commonplace, a dedicated consultation hub for the Teviot regeneration, where you can share your thoughts on the plans, at any time.
