Alberton residents have overturned a planning permit in their battle against the proposed Alberton wind farm.

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal ruled that the wind farm’s proponent, Synergy Wind, had breached planning guidelines in its application, and overturned the Planning Minister’s decision from December last year to approve a planning permit.

VCAT found Synergy Wind failed to properly account for three dwellings within the footprint of the windfarm – all of which were less than one kilometre from a proposed turbine – in breach of the Wellington Planning Scheme.
