The Scottish Executive has confirmed that a public inquiry will be held into plans for a 48-turbine wind farm at Fallago Rig in the Lammermuir Hills.
Scottish Borders Council has already raised objections to the application by North British Windpower Ltd.
At a meeting earlier this year they decided to oppose the scheme – which had been reduced from 64 turbines – by nine votes to three.
The council has now to decide how to be represented at the inquiry.
