Opposition to wind farm visual impact  

Opponents of a 37-turbine wind farm proposed to be built on Te Waka Range, west of Napier, say it will have significant adverse effects on the environment and the visual landscape.

The Environment Court is considering evidence from three organisations including local iwi opposed to the wind farm.

It would provide sufficient power for 50,000 households.

Counsel for the Outstanding Landscape Preservation Society says the site is within an area considered an outstanding natural landscape.

Mathew McClelland says the turbines will dominate and disrupt the visual landscape and compromise the range’s integrity.

He says the benefits of wind power are undeniable but it is totally inappropriate to put turbines on the top of the range as they will appear as a clutter of mechanical structures.
