Landowners who will be surrounded by wind turbines, should the Ceres project get the green light, said, while they aren’t against wind farms, the impact of a project of this magnitude on prime agricultural land is a major concern.

More than 40 farmers from the Curramulka and Sandilands district have formed a community group to look at, and actively discuss, the implications of the development.

“Comments that have been bandied about that it is just sour grapes on our part because we aren’t involved are total fabrication,” spokesman Chris Rowe said.

“There are some that have been actually negotiating with the company for almost 18 months and, after seeking legal advice and weighing up the pros and cons of the conditions outlined in the contracts, made a conscious decision 12 months ago not to take up the offer.”

For Tania and Geoff Stock, who were first approached seven years ago, the decision not to be involved wasn’t made lightly.

For the full report, see the print issue of this week’s YP Country Times.
