Legal issue to blame for wind farm plan delay  

Credit:  The Southern Reporter | 21 September 2013 | www.thesouthernreporter.co.uk ~~

A wind farm firm removed all the boxes containing its planning paperwork just three days after lodging them with Scottish Borders Council.

A council spokesman confirmed that energy firm Infinis deposited its application for seven turbines at Cummings Hill, south of Jedburgh, with SBC on Friday, September 6.

However, officials got a call on the following Monday, after which the boxes, believed to number eight, were uplifted and carted away.

Infinis confirmed the documents were removed when it became aware of a “minor legal point still needing clarification”. An Infinis spokesperson added: “It was therefore decided to delay final submission, which is now expected in the near future.”

SBC told us: “A processing agreement, indicating how and when the application – and consultation processes – will be handled, will form part of the application package,” said the spokesman.

“This agreement will be finalised prior to submission, and signed up to by both SBC and the developers.

However, Philip Kerr, of Chesters Wind Farm Action Group, was surprised.

“Given the application has undergone major changes and already been significantly delayed beyond the projected filing date of spring 2013, we’re surprised further issues have been found after redrafting and printing.
