Wind farm exhibitions

PNE Wind UK Ltd will hold a third round of public exhibitions in Lauder Public Hall and Westruther Village Hall this week to allow the local communities to view revised plans for a wind farm at Brunta Hill, north-west of Westruther.

The new layout sees a reduction in the number of turbines from 10 to eight, and the height of the turbines from 126.5m to 100m.

PNE Wind UK Ltd will present their revised plans to Scottish Borders Council in the autumn in the form of a supplementary environmental statement.

The first exhibition is in Lauder Public Hall on Thursday from 4-9pm, and in Westruther Village Hall on Friday, again from 4-9pm.
