Inquiry to be held into Whitelaw Brae wind farm plans

A public inquiry will be held into controversial plans for a wind farm near Tweedsmuir in the Scottish Borders.

Developer 2020 Renewables want to erect 14 turbines, up to 133m (436ft) tall, at Whitelaw Brae.

Scottish Borders Council objected to the scheme, citing concerns about the cumulative visual impact on archaeological sites.

The inquiry will be held at Tweedsmuir village hall, from 23 August.
