Stony Gap Wind farm refused by Goyder Council Development Assessment Panel on health grounds  

Credit:  Mid North Wind Farm Awareness | 1 August 2012 ~~

Today (1st August 2012) at Burra the Regional Council of Goyder Development Assessment Panel refused consent of the 41 turbine Stony Gap wind farm on the basis of community health concerns.

The panel voted 3 : 2 in favour of refusing consent.

Elected members Jane Kellock and Peter Dunn asked probing questions of the Wind farm proponents and were not convinced by the responses to their concerns about the impact on 4 households between 1.25 and 2 km from proposed towers.

Councillor Dunn proposed the motion to refuse consent and this was seconded by Councillor Kellock. One other Dap member voted in support of CR Dunn’s motion.

The Solicitor for TRUenergy said no one could guarantee there would be no health impacts. Not his exact words.

He also said there were only 4 non stakeholder houses within 5 km . This is not true as the township of Burra is around 4.5 km from the closest proposed turbine.

TRUenergy said after the meeting that they will appeal the decision through the ERD Court.

For more information on the wording of the motion and other details contact John Brak, the DAP Public Officer at Goyder Council
