Traditional owners want wind farm site inspected again  

Traditional Aboriginal landowners want another survey done of a site where a wind farm has been approved.

Hepburn Shire Council in central Victoria gave its consent to the two-turbine Leonards Hill wind farm last week, saying there were no heritage or Aboriginal cultural issues.

But wind farm opponents are expected to lodge an appeal against the decision with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal within days.

Ricky Nelson, an elder with the Dja Dja Wurrung tribe, says his group did not give consent to the wind farm and he wants the land inspected again.

“I’m not entirely sure about who or how the original survey was conducted. They might say that nothing was found, but that doesn’t mean that nothing was there. I’d like some more details on how that was carried out,” he said.
