Cloich Forest wind farm proposals go to public inquiry

A public inquiry is to be held into proposals for an 18-turbine wind farm near Eddleston in the Scottish Borders.

Cloich Wind Farm LLP is behind the Peeblesshire scheme.

Energy minister Fergus Ewing has referred the application to the Scottish government's directorate of planning and environmental appeals.

Scottish Borders Council has opposed plans for the Cloich Forest wind farm, claiming that it would cause unacceptable harm to the landscape.
