Panel to review wind farm extension bid  

Credit:  ABC News, www.abc.net.au 13 July 2011 ~~

A plan to extend a wind farm development in South Australia’s mid-north will go before the assessment panel of the Regional Council of Goyder today.

International Power wants to boost the number of turbines planned for Willogoleche Hill near Hallett from 26 to 37.

A planning assessor for the council has recommended the development be approved, subject to a number of conditions.

However, Yacka resident Dennis Dale says the region will soon be surrounded by turbines.

“I’m just concerned that this [is] one of many wind farms in that area of Hallett, there are 800 turbines just planned, being built or operating already just in this area of the mid-north,” she said.

“I just think there’s too many of them.”
