Ambitious plans to create “a new town centre” in Dalkeith could lead to Jarnac Court being demolished by no later than 2022.

As the Advertiser went to press on Tuesday, the radical proposals to regenerate the town’s main square were set to be unveiled at a meeting of the full council.

In a written report published on the council’s website last Friday, Garry Sheret, head of property and facilities management, outlined a phased programme for delivery of a new council headquarters together with offices, a library, arts centre, contact centre and shops.

Set for completion in 2023, the project will begin with a feasibility study – at the cost of £180,500 – to look at various options.

These will include residential and leisure opportunities.
