Wind farm's opponents to step up fight  

Campaigners fighting against plans to build a wind farm in Midlothian have contacted residents to urge them to oppose the scheme.

Householders near the Auchencorth Moss site on the outskirts of Penicuik fear the turbines will create unacceptable noise and vibration levels, and blight views in the area.

Plans have been formally submitted to Midlothian Council by E.ON UK, but the authority is waiting on a general report on the suitability of the area for wind turbines before taking a decision.

The Penicuik Environmental Protection Association (PEPA) has now written to members, reminding them that objections can still be sent to the council.

Last year, 718 people wrote to the local authority in just two weeks after E.ON UK submitted its planning application.

The proposals would see 18 wind turbines with a maximum height of 102 metres erected.
