Wind farm plans recommended for refusal

Proposals for a 15 turbine wind farm near the border between Scotland and England have been recommended for refusal by planning officials.

The scheme at Solwaybank, south west of Langholm has been scaled down from its original plans.

But, Dumfries and Galloway Council's planning committee has been advised to turn down the scheme because of concerns about the impact on the Eskdalemuir Weather station, and interference on air traffic control radars.
