Wind farm near Hawick heads to public inquiry – BBC News

A date has been set for a public inquiry into a wind farm near Hawick
opposed by Scottish Borders Council.

A 10-day hearing into the 15-turbine Birneyknowe project will start on 5
March at Minto Golf Club.

Banks Renewables said the project could provide a £2.5m community benefit
fund to support local groups and good causes.

However, councillors unanimously agreed to object due to its landscape,
visual and cultural impact.
