Their original proposal to erect 21 wind turbines, each approximately 420 feet high. Stretching almost 4 miles from near the A68 to Corsbie Moor and the A6089, if approved, it would be one of the largest windfarms so far built in the Borders.
On 15 February E.On announced that they proposed to reduce the number of turbines to twelve. They claimed that this was in response to objections by residents. However, for reasons given here we believe that this, or a similar scheme, was their original intention and the larger proposal a tactical gambit.
There are still nearly 60 homes within 2km (1.25 miles) of the proposed turbine locations which could suffer from noise and visual impact. The turbines will still be visible from almost everywhere within 10km (6.25 miles) of Legerwood.
Following an objection from the SBC landscape consultant, and a critical response from the Planning Officer, a further reduction to nine turbines was proposed.
E.on have until 3rd December to appeal to Holyrood.
