Chatsworth council is planning two bylaws to control wind turbine development in their municipality.
Council proposes extending the setback distance between an industrial wind turbine and residence from 550 metres to 2,000 metres.
Council also wants wind turbine companies to have equipment to deal with high elevation fires and rescues. That would mean trucks with aerial ladders and high pressure hoses that could reach the top of the turbines, which are more than 10 storeys high.
