Leadburn wind farm plans knocked back  

Credit:  Midlothian Advertiser, www.midlothianadvertiser.co.uk 7 January 2012 ~~

Plans to construct six 125-metre high wind turbines at Leadburn have been rejected.

Scottish Borders Council refused to grant Lomond Energy planning consent, given the detrimental impact the development would have on the landscape at Spurlens Rig. Councillors were also concerned at the “significant adverse impact” on the Pentland and Moorfoot Hills ranges.

The development attracted 745 objections, including those from Penicuik and District Community Council, which was concerned at the impact on the local landscape and of heavy haulage using local roads, particularly the Penicuik Conservation Area.

Midlothian Council had not formally objected, but voiced significant concerns over landscape and visual impacts together with the haulage routes for the site.

Full story in this week’s Advertiser. On sale now.
