South Gippsland Shire Council
Minutes, 7 November 2007
Mirboo North

C.8 BUFFALO WARATAH ROAD, TARWIN LOWER (LOT 1 ON TP805426P) – SUBDIVISION (REFERENCE: 2006/151) [pp. 34-39]  …

MOVED: Cr Newton
SECONDED: Cr Hutchinson-Brooks

THAT NOTIFIES THE VICTORIAN CIVIL AND COUNCIL ADMINISTRATIVE TRIBUNAL THAT IT OFFERS NO OBJECTION TO THE PROPOSED SUBDIVISION OF THE LAND INTO 4 LOTS, AT BUFFALO WARATAH ROAD, TARWIN LOWER (LOT 1 ON TP805426P) SUBJECT TO THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS: …

2. PRIOR TO THE ISSUE OF A STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE AN AGREEMENT UNDER SECTION 173 OF THE PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENT ACT 1987 MUST BE ENTERED INTO WITH THE OWNER OF EACH LOT CREATED WHICH ENSURES THAT ALL FUTURE LAND OWNERS ARE ADVISED THAT THE LOTS HEREBY APPROVED ARE LOCATED IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE FUTURE ‘BALD HILLS’ WIND ENERGY FACILITY AND AS SUCH, RESIDENTS ON THE LOTS MAY EXPERIENCE DETRIMENTAL AMENITY EFFECTS ARISING FROM THE FACILITY SUCH AS NOISE, BLADE GLINT AND BLADE FLICKER.

… CARRIED

[NWW Note.  This council acted here on the basis of their experience with the nearby Toora facility. The Bald Hills wind energy facility has yet to be built. It was delayed by the presence of the threatened orange-bellied parrot and other species (a problem that remains despite planning approval). If it is not erected this year (2012), it will be subject to new rules in Victoria specifying a minimum 2 km (1.24 mi) distance from homes and 5 km from the coast, both of which conditions the site violates.]
