A new planning application has been submitted for a wind farm development near the Borders village Lauder.

London-based Airvolution Energy Limited want to erect seven turbines on agricultural land at Muircleugh Farm, two miles south west of Lauder. The company previously withdrew an application to put up six turbines at Muircleuch.

After a fresh look at the site, they have come up with a re-sign that involves seven turbines reaching a height of 110 metres.

Airvolution say the 23 Mega Watt development will result in £105,000 a year in local community benefits. Planners at Scottish Borders Council will consider the application within the next few months.
