Moor wind farm approval advised near Grantshouse

A council is being advised to approve plans for eight wind turbines on moorland in the Borders.

LE20 Ltd is behind the Howpark project near to Grantshouse.

A number of objections have been received highlighting that the area was previously said to have no further capacity for turbines.

A Scottish Borders Council report said the approval of other wind farms on appeal meant the "prevailing character of the landscape" had changed.

It advised approval of the application with a number of conditions.
