The Victorian Government has called on the federal Environment Minister to make a final decision about the Bald Hills wind farm.
Senator Ian Campbell vetoed the South Gippsland turbines to protect the orange-bellied parrot.
The proponent, Wind Power, has now decided to move six of the turbines away from the coast and out of the parrot’s migration path.
Victorian Attorney-General Rob Hulls says there is no longer any reason for delay.
“All we get from Senator Campbell is delaying tactics, he’s called for further consultation, even though this wind farm has gone through an exhaustive process, well the latest round of consultation has now finished, so Senator Campbell’s time is up,” he said.
