Solar and wind plans for farm

Have your say

A LANGSHAW farmer has applied to Scottish Borders Council to erect almost 200 solar panels and two 25m-high wind turbines in fields near the hamlet.

An application for 192 ground-mounted solar panels has been submitted on behalf of Mr Hall of Langshaw Farm by AE Associates.

A supporting report to the council’s planning department states: “The proposal will support the long-term viability of Langshaw Farm and will help to sustain a rural business and rural employment.”

The application for the two turbines has been lodged by Gaia-Wind, on behalf of Mr Hall.

It is proposed that these, too, would supply energy for use on the farm itself, with any surplus being sold to the National Grid.
