Barbed wire security fencing will surround a water tank proposed for Selkirk.

Scottish Water will discuss the plan to build the 56 metre long tank on land close to South Common Cottages with the town council on Monday (December 13th) evening, the Selkirk Weekend Advertiser reported.

While there are concerns that the development will be too close to Deer Park, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency have not objected to the proposal, the newspaper said.

Scottish Water said the tank, which will store treated water from Howden, is needed to provide for future growth in the Selkirk settlement," the newspaper quoted the organisation as saying.

It has explained that landscaping and earthworks will take place to improve the aesthetics of the tank.

Recently, it was announced that security fencing will be installed to fence of land in Wrexham in readiness for the development of a link road.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800285420-ADNFCR
