First assessments of the site started six years ago
A wind farm project at a site first examined six years ago is seeking consent from the Scottish government.
Wind Energy, the company behind the plans, wants to construct 21 turbines at Newfield Moor to the north east of Lockerbie.
The company first began investigating the suitability of the site in 2004 and has held a number of public meetings.
Last year vandals destroyed a wind monitoring mast worth £20,000 being used in the area.
If it receives approval the development will have the capacity to generate up to 63 megawatts (MW) of electricity.
