South Huron will not proceed with any bylaw to impede the march of wind turbines across its landscape.

Chief Administrative Officer Roy Hardy says administration explored the possibility in response to a recent delegation of residents.

Hardy says the Ontario Municipal Act will not allow any bylaw that aims to thwart an applicable provincial or federal law – in this case, the Green Energy Act.

The CAO says his recommendation to Council was that it explore other options.

At its meeting on Monday – Council members voted to write to the Provincial government requesting a moratorium on wind turbine development until a federal Health Study is complete.
