An extension to a wind farm project near Hallett in South Australia’s Mid North will go ahead after being approved by the Goyder Council.
Electricity company International Power wanted to increase the number of wind turbines on its Willogoleche Hill site from 26 to 37.
Some locals were opposed to the plan, with ten making submissions to the council’s development assessment panel.
The panel ruled in the company’s favour on the condition that traffic be managed properly during construction and environmental concerns be taken into account.
