Kincardine Wind Farm Gets By-law Back-up  


The Enbridge Ontario Wind Farm project is taking one more big step forward in Kincardine today.

Local council there has formally approved the wind energy company’s envelope zoning approach- passing over a hundred individual bylaws to allow 110 turbine units on 102 rural lots in the Underwood and North Bruce area.

The company can now move the project ahead and will be out in the fields in the coming weeks trying to come up with specific locations for each turbine.

Project opponents Windfarm Action Group say Kincardine Council is rushing ahead to please the business investors and not putting enough emphasis on the health and welfare of local ratepayers.

WAG spokesperson Kathy McCarell says the Ministry of the Environment has yet to even sign off on noise concerns that have dogged the wind farm project from the outset and asked why municipal councilors are in such a rush to grant zoning approvals.

Kincardine Mayor Glenn Sutton says they’ve been left to make a decision and says after hearing from all sides of the wind energy debate he’s confident Kincardine Council has made a good one.
