A council has agreed to extend planning consent for three years on proposals for a data storage centre - just weeks after rejecting a similar application.
It allows more time for multi-million pound plans to progress at Peelhouses Farm north of Lockerbie.
Last month a bid for a similar three-year extension on data centre proposals at Johnstonebank Farm near Ecclefechan were rejected.
Planning officers had advised approval on both occasions.
