Lal Lal Windfarm concerns aired  

Residents surrounding the proposed Lal Lal Windfarm have aired more concerns over the plan.

Some residents believe they have no guarantee how the proposal will affect them, the visual amenity and farming.

WestWind-Energy lodged its planning application with the planning minister last month for a 64-turbine wind farm, split into two sections, north of Elaine and east of Yendon.

Millbrook resident Michael Phyland is making a submission to the proposal, with his property only 700m from the nearest proposed turbine.

His family recently had some of their land acquired for the fast rail project, making the railway line within 250m on one side of his home, and proposed turbines on the other.

“We’re concerned to have so many turbines so close to home, and about the amount of noise – we’ve no idea how it’s going to affect us,” Mr Phyland said.

Landholder Paul Roberts said he was concerned about easements which may need to be developed for the project.

WestWind-Energy was unavailable for comment last night.

The company has encouraged concerned residents to read and make a submission to the proposal before August 8.
