The Planning Assessment Commission has made a determination to grant consent to the proposed Rye Park Wind Farm project with a number of modifications to the proposal.
The wind farm, which has been the cause of division among residents in Rye Park, was given the green light mid last week.
A total of 92 turbines have been approved, with 17 less than the proposed 109 turbines.
Rye Park resident Debbie Vanderlaan sees this as a win for those in the community with the 17 turbines to be removed from close to the village.
The Department of Planning and Environment recommended conditions of approval included the deletion of up to 25 turbines on visual impact grounds.
However developer of the wind farm Tilt Renewables has said it doesn’t agree with the removal of the turbines based on visual grounds and wants to remove the recommendations and reinstate all the turbines in the final conditions of approval.
Construction is expected to begin mid 2018.
