Planners reject wind farms  

Three wind farm proposals within close proximity of each other have been rejected by Berwick Borough Council.

There were jubilant scenes inside a packed Maltings theatre as councillors reached their decision after a marathon six hour planning meeting.

Planning officers had been recommending approval of a seven turbine scheme at
Moorsyde, near Ancroft, and a six turbine scheme at Barmoor, near Lowick.

However, members voted 8-1 in support of an amendment tabled by Coun Dougie Watkin to refuse the applications on the grounds that their visual impact outweighed any environmental benefit.

A third proposal for seven turbines at Toft Hill, near Duddo, was also rejected in line with the recommendation of planning officers.

It is unlikely this will be the end of the matter, however, as the applicants are likely to appeal against the decisions.
