BT unveil plans for Longformacus wind farm  

Just weeks after an inquiry into a controversial wind farm application finished, plans for another in the Lammermuirs have been unveiled.

The fate of Fallago Rig rests with Scottish Ministers after a three week inquiry ended last month but now local residents are faced with a new application- this time from British Telecom (BT) proposing the building of a 60 metre anemometer on land at Redpath Farm, north west of Longformacus.

If approved, the mast will measure a variety of meteorological conditions such as wind speed and direction. The objective is to determine whether the conditions at the site are appropriate for renewable energy generation. It is suggested that the mast remain at the farm site for a period of two years.

Residents are worried that this will ultimately pave the way for a full application for another wind farm, and with 200 turbines already built or approved for the Lammermuirs, some people have already written letters of objection to Scottish Borders Council at this early stage.

The application was received by the council’s planning department on February 20.
