Report gives conditional nod to wind farm  

Credit:  ABC News | 11 July 2013 | www.abc.net.au ~~

A planning report, compiled for a panel that will decide whether a Great Southern wind farm proceeds, has recommended it go ahead with strict conditions.

Moonies Hill Energy’s Flat Rock Wind Farms project would create a 150-megawatt facility in the shires of Kojonup and Broomehill-Tambellup.

The company says the project could power 90,000 homes and inject $130 million into the local economy.

However, it hit a snag earlier this year when the Great Southern Joint Development Assessment Panel refused to give planning approval to the part of the development in Broomehill-Tambellup.

The company appealed against that decision and another hearing is scheduled for next Friday, when the panel will decide whether to accept the Broomehill-Tambellup Shire planner’s recommendation to approve it.

That recommendation includes strict conditions, including noise regulations and that the development begins within four years of the issuing of a building permit.
