Hepburn council is welcoming the approval of a two-turbine wind farm at Leonard’s Hill, south of Daylesford in central Victoria.
The council itself approved the plan earlier this year, but the decision was appealed against in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
Shire chief executive Victor Swzed says the extra conditions placed on the project are reasonable and will not stop it proceeding.
“They have had some additional conditions to what council had placed on the permit, they particularly relate to an environmental management plan and also monitoring noise, they require that within two months of commencement of operation an independent noise monitoring program is to be undertaken,” he said.
