Mayor welcomes homestead wind farm protection

The Pyrenees Shire says a homestead at Stockyard Hill deserved added protection from a wind farm which will be built there.

The 157-turbine wind farm will be built by Origin Energy, south of Beaufort.

The farm was to include more than 200 turbines but the Victorian Government lowered the number because of concerns about the impact on the Mawallock Homestead.

Mayor David Clark says the homestead owners have put a lot of work into it.

“I would say that it’s about the owner making a good case in terms of his property and what his property’s about and it is quite an historic property and the Mitchells to their credit have made a huge investment in the property and the garden and that kind of thing and it is a real showpiece of the region,” he said.
