Plans to build a wind farm between Stow and Lauder have been rejected by Scottish Borders Council.

Airvolution's application for the seven turbine site at Muircleugh was unanimously refused by the Council’s Planning and Building Standards Committee yesterday morning.

The council believes it would have an "unacceptable" impact on the landscape and character of the area.

But the company behind the plans claims the council has 'lost out on over £3.9m of investment' to the region. It says it is considering its options with regards to next steps.
