Federal Govt quizzed over wind farm decision 

The Federal Government has been asked to provide an official statement of reasons for its decision to lift a veto on the Bald Hills wind farm.

The company, Wind Power, has been granted approval to build 52 turbines 10 kilometres from the south Gippsland coast near Tarwin Lower.

South Gippsland Shire has voted to ask new federal Environment Minister Malcolm Turnbull to explain the Government’s decision.

Mayor Jennie Deane says 1,500 people in the region opposed the project and it should not be allowed to proceed.

“We’ve always supported the Tarwin Valley coastal guardians and the local community there which is very opposed to this wind farm, so at this stage we really need to find out as a first step why the decision has been reversed and then we’ll decide what further action to take, if any, to support the community,” she said.
