Bill backing pastoral lands renewable energy projects passes Legislative Council  

Credit:  ABC News | 6 Aug 2014 | www.abc.net.au ~~

A bill supporting renewable energy developments on South Australian pastoral lands will go to State Parliament’s House of Assembly, after passing the Upper House.

The Government says the Pastoral Land Management Bill is the first of its kind in Australia.

It aims to make it easier to establish wind farms or solar energy projects on pastoral properties.

Environment Minister Ian Hunter says it would allow a wind farm developer to apply for a licence to build and operate a wind farm on Crown land subject to a pastoral lease and for the wind farm to co-exist with a pastoral leaseholder’s activities.

He says the views of affected pastoralists will be taken into account.

Ninety-five per cent of wind farm licence payments would go to lessees and native title holders.
