Wind farm delayed for lambs

It took years to get planning permission, but a windfarm of 13 turbines is on hold until the lambing on the Berwickshire site is over.

Wind energy company Banks Renewables gained permission to put up the turbines on Quixwood Moor earlier this month but is postponing its planned community meetings.

Company director Phil Dyke said: “It’s natural that, after the years of hard work into getting the wind farm approved, our team is enthusiastic to start the next phase. But we’re happy to put that on hold so the lambing season can pass smoothly.” Meetings have been rescheduled to the end of May.
