Seismic concerns over Scotland-England border wind farm

Proposals for a 15-turbine wind farm near the border between Scotland and England have been recommended for refusal by planning officials.

RES has scaled down the scheme at Solwaybank, south west of Langholm.

However, Dumfries and Galloway Council’s planning committee has been advised to turn down the plans.

Officers raised concerns about the impact on a nearby seismological recording station and interference on air traffic control radars.

The company has said it believes the project could make a “significant contribution” to Scotland’s targets for renewable energy.

Meanwhile, residents in the Borders are being invited to see full details of a 15-turbine development being proposed by Banks Renewables in their area.

The company said it had been consulting with the community for almost two years over its plans for Birneyknowe wind farm between Hawick and Bonchester Bridge.

Exhibitions will take place at the William Laidlaw Memorial Hall in Bonchester Bridge on 4 March, Hawick Rugby Club on 5 March and Denholm Village Hall on 6 March.

All three events are open to the public from 15:0 to 19:00.
