Wind farm to affect thousands: opponents  

Opponents of the Lal Lal wind farm south of Ballarat are expecting the approval process for the project to be extensive and difficult.

Planning documents for the 64-turbine facility have been lodged with the Victorian Government.

Lal Lal and Elaine Landscape Guardians spokesman John McMahon says the wind farm will impact 2,000 homes in the area.

“With 2,000 people affected in only five kilometres, it’s probably the largest effect on neighbours of any project proposed thus far in Victoria,” he said.

“And there are something like 27 wind projects either operating, approved or waiting approval just in the south-west corner of Victoria.”
