Windfarm meeting called ‘lopsided’  

Credit:  ABC News, www.abc.net.au 9 December 2010 ~~

There are concerns a wind farm workshop on the Monaro in the State’s south east failed to address all sides of the contentious issue.

Organisers say there was a positive response from the 100-strong crowd at this week’s meeting at Cooma.

Alan Gillespie-Jones from Bombala is a solicitor specialising in commercial leases and says the discussion was designed to support the wind farm industry.

He says key arguments are being ignored.

“I think it would’ve been helpful had there been a person living near a wind farm who had direct knowledge of their operation,” he said.

“There are a lot of people who are concerned, raising issues and concerns about them.

“There are legal issues, scientific issues; there are a broad range of concerns.”
