Lloyds TSB has confirmed it intends to take forward proposals for a £200 million data centre in Dumfriesshire. It will hold two public information sessions this week to outline its plans for farmland near Ecclefechan. The site was promoted by Internet Villages International, which secured outline planning permission in 2010.
If given the go-ahead, the Lloyds TSB project would create one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe. The banking group has indicated its intention to submit a formal planning application to Dumfries and Galloway Council in March.
