Penicuik wind farm hearing set

A PUBLIC meeting has been arranged to examine plans for a controversial Midlothian wind farm.

Midlothian Council’s planning committee has sanctioned a pre-determination hearing to consider Wind Prospect Developments’ proposal to site nine wind turbines at Mount Lothian, near Penicuik.

The scheme has attracted more than 700 representations, with consultation responses received from Transport Scotland, the National Air Traffic Services, the RSPB, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and Scottish Borders Council.
