Plans for a large-scale housing development and relocation of a caravan park in Peebles have been approved by councillors.

Aberdeen Asset Management applied to redevelop the site at the Rosetta Caravan Park on Rosetta Road.

It received planning permission in principle to build about 130 houses - mainly detached properties.

The scheme had encountered opposition from Peebles Community Council and Peebles Civic Society.

The plans will see the existing caravan park operation, which has been on the site for more than 25 years, relocated onto the fields behind Rosetta House.

Councillors approved the application with a list of conditions attached.
