Govt gives in-principle support to wind farm  

The New South Wales Government has given in-principle support to a proposed wind farm near Silverton in the far west of the state.

Debate has been heated since the Government decided to forcibly acquire land on four grazing properties.

Landowners were told last week they were not allowed to build turbines on their land because the lease only permits grazing.

However, the State Government announced today that it is committed to supporting the proposed development of the $2 billion wind farm.

Lands Minister Tony Kelly says under the lease, the graziers cannot negotiate with the developers Epuron, but the Government has agreed to provide compensation for the loss of any leaseholder rights.
