A long-running bid to construct a wind farm in the Borders is being taken
to a fresh appeal.
Scottish Borders Council rejected a first application for eight turbines at
Barrel Law near Roberton in 2013.
That was confirmed by a Scottish government reporter a year later but
revised plans – for seven turbines – emerged last year.
They were again refused by councillors but that decision is now being taken
to appeal once again.
SBC turned down the scheme earlier this year despite officers having
recommended approval.
Developers have argued that decision was not justified and that the
Scottish government should allow the project to proceed.
