Grantshouse wind turbine proposal rejected

Plans for an eight-turbine wind farm in eastern Berwickshire have been rejected by members of Scottish Borders Council's planning committee.

LE 20 Ltd wanted to erect eight 100-metre-high turbines on land north of Howpark Farmhouse near Grantshouse.

Officials had recommended approval, but there were a number of objections to the scheme.

Councillors turned down the application claiming the area was already "saturated" with turbines.
