Better coordination urged in wind farm fight

The Family First Party says a state-wide group is needed to tackle wind farm developments.

A number of groups have been formed to oppose wind farms in various regions, including Keyneton near the Barossa Valley.

The party’s Rob Brokenshire says a more coordinated approach will be discussed at a forthcoming meeting.

“The Government and those that are pro-wind farm at all costs want to brand them in a certain name but I won’t accept that,” he said.

“These people are not radical, they are not extremists but they do have a genuine concern and they deserve to have a democratic right of consideration.”

Mr Brokenshire says he is organising a meeting for early next month.

“One of the main items of the meeting is the concept of forming a state-wide group that looks at the big picture of the impact from wind farms on rural and regional people,” he said.

“The stronger and more coordinated the approach the better the chance of getting the Government to realise there are at least two sides to the debate and that these people that have got concerns need to be heard.”
