E.On Corsbie Moor wind farm rejection recommended  

Credit:  BBC News | www.bbc.co.uk 3 September 2012 ~~

Plans for a Borders wind farm, which have twice been reduced in size, have been recommended for refusal.

E.On had originally looked to build 21 turbines at Corsbie Moor near Westruther.

However, that number was reduced to 12 and then further cut to just nine after the company “considered all the views from the local community”.

Scottish Borders Council planning officials are still unhappy with the bid and are advising refusal.

They say the development would be out of scale with the landscape.

They also say walkers using the Southern Upland Way would experience “adverse cumulative impact” when the nine new turbines were added to existing schemes.

E.On has said the scheme has been “carefully redesigned” to produce “a significant amount of renewable energy using a smaller number of turbines”.
