Senator tries to halt Bald Hills wind farm  

Credit:  ABC News | www.abc.net.au 23 August 2012 ~~

The DLP Senator for Victoria, John Madigan, will put a motion to the Senate to stop a wind farm development at Bald Hills in the state’s east.

The power company Mitsui is building the 50 tower wind farm near Inverloch, in South Gippsland.

Senator Madigan says the Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke can stop the project.

He says the wind farm is a threat to nationally and internationally listed migratory birds.

“Most people in our community believe in a balance between social, economic and environmental incomes,” he said.

“My experience is that South Gippsland, the Latrobe Valley all down through Gippsland have faired pretty badly in this area.”
