Residents remain concerned about wind farm plans 

Residents in the Black Springs area near Oberon in western New South Wales say a public exhibition session put on by the proponent of a wind farm has not allayed their concerns.

Wind Corporation Australia plans to spend $32 million on the nine turbine wind farm.

The company’s Mark Fogarty says more than 50 people attended yesterday’s session at Black Springs.

He says he believes most long-term local residents are in favour of the economic benefits of the wind farm and concerns about the impacts on lifestyle are mainly from newcomers.

“Most of these wind farm objections, they’ve been people who have come in from Sydney who don’t wish to share their tree change environment with wind turbines,” he said.

Bob Packer, who has been in the area for about seven years, rejects that.

“He’s coming from gaga land with that statement. We’ve started an association and [there are] more original farmers in that association than newcomers,” he said.

The company will now analyse survey forms filled out at yesterday’s session.
