A hearing on the proposed Cherry Tree Wind Farm will resume this week.
The case to build the 16-turbine wind farm at Trawool was last heard at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal in April but was adjourned until Friday when more studies about the potential health and environmental impacts of wind turbines were completed.
The BEAM Mitchell Environment Group wrote a letter to VCAT last week urging a quick determination in favor of the proposed wind farm.
“BEAM continues to be of the opinion that the benefits to our community far exceed any potential for negative impact,” BEAM President Richard Telford said.
Friends of the Earth renewable energy spokesman Leigh Ewbank also through his support behind the proposed development.
If the proposal is givent he green light it will be the second wind farm approved since the Victorian Government introduced tough new planning laws two years ago.
