Council to hear wind farm opposition 

The opponents of a proposed wind farm in the McHarg Ranges, south-east of Bendigo, will put their case to the Mitchell Shire Council this afternoon.

The McHarg Ranges Landscape Guardians group says it is the first meeting it has been able to get with the council since it started fighting the proposal three years ago.

The group fears the development in the Baynton Tooborac area will increase salinity, the fire danger, and threaten several bird species.

Group president John Howard says a malfunctioning turbine could cause a serious wildfire.

“That’s all we need, just one with a howling southerly wind which we often get and it comes through at 80 to 110 kilometres [per hour] and lasts for four days, one malfunction on a nice summer’s day and it’ll be in Heathcote before we can get the trucks out of the shed,” he said.
