Plans to build a windfarm substation at the site of the Battle of Prestonpans have raised objections, Herald Scotland has reported.
Council planners recommend granting permission for the substation at the battlefield where Bonnie Prince Charlie defeated government forces in 1745.
The substation would take power from a proposed offshore wind farm which would be strung out along up to 13 miles of the Angus coast to the National Grid.
However, the Battle of Prestonpans 1745 Heritage Trust want the plans to build on the battlefield thrown out.
A report set to go before East Lothian Council’s planning committee on Tuesday reveals the “majority” of the site is “within the boundary of the battle”.
