Extra time for wind farm survey  

Credit:  ABC News | 19 March 2013 | www.abc.net.au ~~

Community concerns have prompted an extension to the consultation period for the $2 billion King Island wind farm proposal.

About 160 people have attended a public meeting on the island to discuss Hydro’s 200-turbine project.

Hydro is running an independent survey to determine whether there is enough community support for the project to proceed to a full feasibility study.

The consultative committee’s chairman, John Brewster, says that was to be sent out yesterday but now will not happen until June.

“People felt that they were a bit pressured in that they didn’t feel that they had enough information, which I totally agree with,” he said.

“Also that we needed to think about a few more aspects and bring people in to talk to us who’ve had experience in other areas.”
