Goldwind applies to alter approved plan for controversial Gullen Range wind farm near Crookwell  

Credit:  ABC News | 9 Apr 2014 | www.abc.net.au ~~

The developer of a wind farm near Crookwell is applying for a modification to its approval conditions because of a dispute over where most of the 73 turbines have been built.

Goldwind Australia is building the Gullen Range wind farm.

The Department of Planning and Infrastructure argues 69 turbines have been built at locations up to 187 metres away from those originally planned and authorised.

Work on the wind farm was stalled last month.

Goldwind has maintained it’s allowed “minor relocation” of turbines and the social and environmental impacts of the changed locations are small or negligible.

However the company says it’s now agreed to apply for a modification to incorporate the final layout of the turbines.

The application is open for public comment until May the second.
