Council build 1,000 homes.
Midlothian council plans to spend pounds 105million on building 1,000 new homes in Dalkeith.
The properties will include flats, and two, three and four-bedroom houses for tenants.
The move follows a shortage of council housing stock as more tenants have opted to buy their homes in the last few years.
There has also been a rise in the popularity of the area - a recent survey revealed Dalkeith topped the property market list with the average cost of a house at pounds 192,000.
