Noise concern wind farm near Grantshouse seeks approval

Councillors are to meet to decide the fate of an eight-turbine wind farm in the Scottish Borders.

LE20 Ltd is behind the Howpark project near to Grantshouse in eastern Berwickshire.

A decision was deferred last month for more detailed reports on any possible noise impact from the scheme.

Scottish Borders Council officials have recommended approval of the project but there have been a number of objections lodged.

Opponents have highlighted that the area was previously said to have no further capacity for turbines.

However, a report to councillors said that the approval of other wind farms on appeal meant the “prevailing character of the landscape” had now changed.
