Council backs wind farm health study calls

The Pyrenees Shire Council is backing a push for a western Victorian-based study into the health effects of wind farms.

The Pyrenees Landscape Guardians group wants the responsible agencies to join forces and research the effects of the Waubra wind farm.

Some residents near the facility complain that noise from the turbines is making them ill.

The Pyrenees Mayor, David Clark, says governments currently refer to studies conducted overseas.

“We’re not going to resolve this if we just keep going and looking at overseas studies and it says that there’s nothing there,” he said.

“Well these people are affected and someone has to at some stage come out and say, ‘well let’s talk about what this is and let’s actually do some research on it’, so that’s really what we hope will happen.”
