State of the Borders finds 15 areas of concern

A draft council report highlighting economic, social and environmental issues of “real concern” to the Borders has been compiled.

The “red” list items stretch to 15 points, while an “amber” list of issues also includes 15 areas of concern.

The red list includes the facts that more households are in poverty in the Borders compared with the rest of Scotland, and that there was a 10 per cent increase in theft in the region in the three years to 2012/13, compared with just one per cent nationally.
