Wind farm “arrogance” criticised  

Credit:  Crookwell Gazette | Oct. 14, 2014 | www.crookwellgazette.com.au ~~

The Crookwell District Landscape Guardians have strongly criticised the Gullen Range Wind Farm for its “arrogant assertion” that it will continue to operate the 69 illegally located Gullen Range turbines ignores both the findings of the Planning and Assessment Commission (PAC) and the Land and Environment Court.

In a special press release the guardians said the, “Gullen Range Wind Farm claims that the project is consistent with the existing project approval.

“This is a deliberate attempt to obscure the fact that since that approval was given, the Land and Environment Court, on appeal by affected landholders, specifically removed permission for the developer to relocate turbines from their originally approved sites.

“After having constructed the majority of wrongly sited turbines, Gullen Range Wind Farm lodged a retrospective development modification application for approval of its illegal relocation of 69 of the 73 turbines.

“This modification application was then refused by PAC.

“There is no appeal on decisions made by the PAC, which has replaced the Minister for Planning and Environment as the final decision maker on this planning matter.”

The press release concluded:” It is reprehensible that Gullen Range Wind Farm, a foreign-owned company, has again chosen to flout the rule of law in Australia and continue to operate.

“Its legal options are to cease to operate the illegally located turbines and relocate them to where they are supposed to be, or to remove them from the development.”
