The fate of a wind farm project in the Scottish Borders which has twice been reduced in size is to be determined by a public hearing next month.

E.On originally proposed 21 turbines at Corsbie Moor near Westruther.

It cut that number to 12 and then to just nine after the company "considered all the views" of the local community.

Scottish Borders Council refused planning permission in September last year but the firm appealed and a hearing will now be held on 10 April.

The applicant and landowner will be among those giving evidence to the event in Lauder Public Hall.

It will also hear from Scottish Borders Council and protest organisation, the Lauderdale Protection Group.

Scottish government reporter Trevor Croft will hold a site visit the following day with a final decision expected in May.
