Oppose Blackmains is a group of committed individuals who believe that the scenic beauty of the Borders is in danger of being obliterated by the march of onshore wind farm developments in the area.
Why Oppose Blackmains? We believe that the proposed development by Enertrag of seven 125 metre wind turbines at a site known as Blackmains is the tipping point.
This proposal appears to represent a new move by developers, who having targeted sparsely populated landscapes, are now targeting rich arable, lowland sites within 750 metres of residential communities. If we do not oppose this development we believe it will open the floodgates for similar applications.
