Hawick wind farm bid eyed up by RES

A "scoping request" which could pave the way for a 37-turbine wind farm near Hawick has been lodged with Scottish Borders Council.

International renewable energy firm RES is behind the project at Highlee Hill above Chesters.

The site is a mixture of farmland and forestry just over seven miles from Hawick.

Consultation meetings with community councils are planned in nearby Hobkirk, Southdean and Newcastleton.
