Scottish Borders Council has been made aware of incidents across the area where people purporting to be from the Council, or working on behalf of the Council, are offering to carry out driveway/footpath works for residents, claiming to have spare materials from road works.

These incidents have occurred in recent weeks in the vicinity of genuine SBC road works.

Please note that the Council does not offer private services door-to-door and if you are approached in this way please turn them away and contact Police Scotland.
