Acciona Energy court date delayed

Acciona Energy’s fight in court to defend the development of its $175 million wind farm near Mount Gambier has been adjourned into the new year to allow for medical evidence submissions.

The Environment Resources and Development Court in Adelaide recently began proceedings on an appeal filed by dairy farmer Richard Paltridge over the construction of the wind farm near his property in Allendale East.

The development had received approval from the District Council of Grant’s Development Assessment Panel in March this year.

The council’s planning and development director, Leith McEvoy, said the court had allowed for medical evidence with a doctor’s statement introduced into the proceedings.

“Acciona and the council now have the right to bring in their own (medical) evidence,” he said. “The industry needs to deal with the issues, so it’s good in a way to present all the evidence.”

The Spanish company – joint developer of the Cathedral Rocks wind farm near Port Lincoln with Roaring 40s and the consortium leader of the group building the Port Stanvac desalination plant through its Agua division – was scheduled to begin construction work on the 46 turbine, 70.5MW wind farm early next year.

Hearings in the Adelaide environmental court will resume towards the middle of January.

It’s the second development in court this year with a decision on an appeal against AGL’s Mt Bryan Wind Farm which is planned for the Razorback Ranges east of Hallett still pending.
