County council plans to set laws for wind turbines by summer  

PICTOU ““ It will likely be this summer before the county introduces new regulations governing the installation of wind turbines.

A series of public meetings over the past few months, along with written submissions, will be used to fine-tune the county’s proposed bylaw, said Warden Allister MacDonald.

“Within the next couple of weeks we’ll be meeting with the consultants and come up with our basic plan,” MacDonald said. “We’ll present it to council later this spring. We’re trying to get a happy balance for the concerned residents and the developers. Wind turbine energy is very important to all of us, but we have to make sure it doesn’t adversely affect residents living nearby.”

After that, it will have to go through first and second reading, as well as a public hearing process where citizens will have one last opportunity to give input on the plan.

MacDonald expects that council will make a decision on the matter in July or August.
