Third Grantshouse wind farm bid submitted

Plans for a third wind farm near Grantshouse in the Borders have been submitted to the local authority.

The application by LE20 would locate eight turbines on land at Howpark Farm - about two miles away.

The site is adjacent to the 22-turbine Drone Hill wind farm and sits to the south of Penmanshiel, which has consent for 14 turbines.

A planning statement said the latest development could meet the energy needs of about 13,000 homes.
