Councillors have been recommended to give the go-ahead to a 10-turbine wind farm near Ashkirk in the Borders.
Airtricity wants to build the development at Langhope Rig off the B711 road.
Council officials have added a list of no fewer than 35 detailed conditions which, they say, should be applied if the scheme gets the go-ahead.
The project would generate electricity for 13,000 homes and connect into the national grid at Hawick.
