New group to fight wind farm proposals  

A new landscape guardians group has been set up to fight plans for two big wind farms.

The Western Plains Guardians are worried about proposals for farms at Nerrin Nerrin, south-east of Lake Bolac, and at Stockyard Hill, south of Beaufort.

Each is believed to have at least 100 turbines.

Group spokesman Warick Read says a moratorium on further wind farms is needed until a national code for assessing them is in place.

“The groups really would like to see the Government engage with the community a little bit more and just say, ‘look, just pull up on these things a little’,” he said.

“I suppose people are feeling as though they’re being railroaded into it, that these companies propose these developments and they’re over a certain size and the council doesn’t really have any input into it at all.

“If only they could open the guidelines a little bit more and make it a lot more transparent.”
