Company to appeal Tararua wind-farm decision

A company planning a wind-farm in the Tararua Ranges will appeal a decision to restrict the number of turbines it is allowed to build.

At a resource consent hearing last month, it was decided to approve only 75 of the 127 wind turbines Allco Wind Energy was hoping for.

The company’s local project manager, Bernhard Voll, says the decision, made by three independent commissioners, is not in line with the Resource Management Act.

He says the appeal has been lodged with the Environment Court but a hearing date has not yet been set.
