Borders and Midlothian wind farm refusal appeal lodged

A wind farm company has appealed to the Scottish government after two councils rejected its 16-turbine plans.

Ridgewind Limited wants to create a development to the west of Heriot.

However, Midlothian Council turned down nine turbines in its area while Scottish Borders Council refused the bid to site seven in its region.

Ridgewind has lodged an appeal and a Scottish government reporter will gather evidence over the next few months before giving a final verdict.
