Plans have been submitted to demolish a redundant Langholm mill dating back to the middle of the 19th Century.

The proposals would see the former Reid and Taylor factory replaced with housing and industrial units.

The property is situated in the town's conservation area.

An application to demolish the building said it was "outmoded with serious structural problems" and there were "environmental, economic and social" benefits to its redevelopment.
