Gilston Hill wind farm plans submitted

Plans have been submitted for a wind farm on the same site in the Borders as a project which was previously rejected by the Scottish government.

Gilston Hill Wind Farm Ltd wants to put up seven turbines on land north west of Gilston Farm, near Heriot.

A 16-turbine project in the same area – straddling the boundary with Midlothian – was turned down in 2013 after an appeal to the Scottish government.

A fresh planning application has now gone to Scottish Borders Council.

Developers said that the new proposals had a “much smaller layout footprint”, which would “dramatically” reduce the landscape impact.
