Latest call for wind farm submissions 'waste of time'  

Victorian Planning Minister Rob Hulls has labelled the latest call for submissions on the Bald Hills wind farm a waste of time and money.

The proponents of the South Gippsland wind farm have applied again to the Federal Environment Minister Ian Campbell to allow the project to proceed.

Senator Campbell stopped the project to protect the orange-bellied parrot, but changed his decision when the company took the issue to the Federal Court.

Mr Hulls says the federal Minister has made the process into a farce by calling for another round of submissions.

“He makes things up as he goes along without any respect for due process,” he said.

“This project has already been through an exhaustive and independent public consultation process and now Senator Campbell wants people in a clandestine way to write to him without any public mechanism for testing those submissions.”
