Permits approved for wind farm

NextEra is inching towards construction of 14 giant wind turbines in West Grey.

Mayor Kevin Eccles says the company met all the criteria, so building permits were issued this week.

They are valid for a year and Eccles says the company still has to work out agreements on entrance permits and load limits on municipal roadways, before actual construction can begin.

Bargaining continues on the main issues, with West Grey seeking financial committments from the company to cover any damage done to the infrastructure by NextEra.

The company won the latest court battle over the wind turbines along highway east of Durham.

The Ontario Divisional court basically told West Grey to get on with negotiating agreements that will allow the company to proceed.

It ruled although the municipality can issue oversize permits and entrance permits but they can’t be used to hold up provincially approved projects like wind turbines.

And the court ordered West Grey to pay 15 thousand dollars in legal costs to NextEra (East Durham Wind Incorporated) within 30 days.
