Kincardine Questions Wind Turbine Planning  

Kincardine continues to struggle for a policy on who’s planning the wind farms.

Area resident Andy Robinson was at council asking again why Kincardine is granting zoning approvals on windfarms which have yet to be fully endorsed by higher tier authorities like the Ministry of the Environment. Robinson is also suggesting a local planning advisory committee be set up to come with policy for all future windfarm proposals.

But Kincardine mayor Larry Kramer says the municipality has to be careful they don’t come up with local planning rules flying in the face of existing provincial policy – which currently endorses wind farms as an viable alternative power source. Kraemer adds Bruce County is currently tackling turbine setback distances and other windfarm issues in its Official Plan re-write, and says now is the time for the public to get their concerns on record at the County level.
