A decision on the latest wind farm for Manawatu has been delayed. The Motorimu wind farm is planned for the hills behind Linton and would have 129 turbines, which could generate enough electricity to power 47,000 homes.
It is being proposed by a subsidiary of Australia’s Allco finance group, which has been told that the commissioners considering the project’s resource consent application need more time. A ruling will now be made later this month.
Company spokesperson Berhnard Voll says it is not concerned by the delay.
