Council renews Whitelaw Brae turbine opposition

Scottish Borders Council's planning committee has agreed to renew its opposition to a proposed wind farm near Tweedsmuir.

It comes despite some changes to the scheme by developers Whitelaw Brae Wind Farm Development Ltd.

Committee members backed officials' concerns regarding the visual impact on a remote part of the Borders.

The final say on the 14-turbine project will lie with the Scottish government.
