Wellington jail concerned over wind farm proposal

A senior officer with the Wellington Correctional Centre has made an impassioned plea to proponents of the proposed windfarm near Wellington during a public meeting on the conditions set by the NSW Planning and Assessment Commission for the approval.

Wayne Bywater told the meeting he represented more than 100 officers at the jail who had never been contacted in regard to the proposed development.

“I represent officers and also inmates who have no voice,” he said.

“We have great concerns. No one has contacted us at all from the windfarm,” he said before crowd of more than 200 people at the Wellington Soldiers Club.

“I want the NSW Planning Assessment Commission and Infigen Energy to tell every officer, every staff member, every inmate they will be safe and secure”
