Council conducts own wind farm noise report  

Credit:  ABC News, www.abc.net.au 11 May 2012 ~~

The Goyder council has requested an acoustics report into a proposed wind farm in the area, before its development assessment panel considers the company’s application.

TRUenergy wants to install 41 turbines at Stony Gap, about seven kilometres from its already operating wind farm at Waterloo, near Clare.

Council CEO John Brak says it wanted an independent review of noise reports provided by TRUenergy.

“The issue around noise with wind farms has been the main issue generally in the Goyder community and in the broader community about wind farms, so it’s the most topical issue and certainly the largest issue other than … environment and visual amenity and flicker and bird strike and things like that,” he said.

He says pending the report being received, a decision on the application is expected to be made by the panel next month.

“To seek an independent peer review of the noise reports that were provided by the applicant … is part of the development assessment process, so that that peer review can inform our consultant planner on the report that she provides to the development assessment panel,” he said.
