Hawkesdale wind turbine layout to go on show

The layout of 31 wind turbines proposed for Hawkesdale will go on display tomorrow.

The proposed wind farm’s turbines would be visible from the Woolsthorpe Heywood Road, Camerons Road and Warrnambool Road, and will be within three kilometres from some homes.

People have seven weeks to comment on the proposed layout, before a planning panel sits to hear formal submissions.

The final say over the project rests with the Planning Minister.

Earlier this year, the company reported it expected only three objections to be made against its plans.

Gamesa Energy is also planning a wind farm near Ryans Corner and is waiting for the Minister to sign off on an environmental effects statement.

It expects the layout of the Ryans Corner wind farm to be on exhibition early next year.
