The Tablelands Regional Council says the Queensland Government has taken decision-making about a controversial wind farm out of its hands.

RATCH Australia is hoping to build at least 75 large wind turbines at Mount Emerald near Walkamin and had asked the council for an extension until next April to meet environmental and technical reporting requirements.

Mayor Rosa Lee Long says that has now been granted by the State Government.

“It certainly takes any decision-making out of the hands of the current Tablelands Regional Council,” she said.

“It is a great concern, especially for the people who live in the area of Mount Emerald who have been, there’s been a lot of people who’ve been vehemently against the wind farm going up in their backyard.”
