Wind farm opponents are describing a meeting in Canberra yesterday to discuss the development of a national code for wind farms as excellent.
The Tarwin Valley Coastal Guardians were among a range of parties at the meeting with Federal Environment Minister Ian Campbell.
The Minister will now put together a working committee to begin writing the code.
A spokesman for the Coastal Guardians, Tim le Roy, says the code needs the State Government’s support to make it work.
“Unless the wind industry starts to conduct itself, and its members start to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner, the war that exists between rural communities and the wind industry in a number of cases, and if we don’t get some standards and agreements on where these turbines can go, and the appropriate locations for them, this battle will not stop,” he said.
