West Wind Energy has lodged its planning application for a wind farm at Lal Lal, south of Ballarat  

If it is approved, it will be the company’s second wind farm on Ballarat’s outskirts, after its nearby Mount Mercer wind farm gained approval last year.

A planning panel will now be set up and a decision may not be made until next year.

Project manager Grant Flynn says the size of the Lal Lal proposal has been reduced from 79 turbines to 64 to take locals’ concerns into account.

“Forty of those would be on the Yendon and 24 on the Elaine section. Things like avoiding all the native vegetation on the site – we’ve made sure we’ve kept all the turbines and access tracks away from native vegetation,” he said.

“A range of stakeholders were involved in that consultation.”
