Borders and Midlothian wind farm plans rejected

Scottish Borders Council has rejected plans for a 16-turbine wind farm straddling the border between the region and Midlothian.

Ridgewind Limited wanted to erect the turbines on land near Gilston Farm.

An application to site seven turbines in the Borders was rejected by that local authority's planning committee this week.

Midlothian Council had already turned down proposals to construct nine turbines within its area.
