Public inquiry into Gilston Hill Windfarm scrapped  

Credit:  By Kirsty Smyth | The Southern Reporter | 25 July 2018 | www.thesouthernreporter.co.uk ~~

A public inquiry into a proposed wind farm near Heriot has been cancelled due to bosses at Edinburgh Airport withdrawing their objections to the scheme.

Scottish Borders Council rejected plans for a seven-turbine wind farm at Gilston Hill last October.

They cited the potential hazard to aviation safety it posed among their reasons for refusal after Edinburgh Airport chiefs claimed the turbines might prove an obstacle to aircraft and could potentially disrupt radar operations.

The council also said the scheme would have a significant detrimental effect on the landscape.

Greenock-based applicant Gilston Hill Windfarm appealed against that decision, with the case then being assigned to Scottish Government reporter Trevor Croft.

A public inquiry had been due to begin at Novotel Hotel in Edinburgh on Tuesday next week.

However, Mr Croft has decided to cancel the inquiry session after an agreement was reached between the applicant and Edinburgh Airport in relation to proposed conditions relating to the latter’s radar.
