VCAT approval for Bald Hills windfarm - finally

7 Aug 2012

After various appeals from wind farm opponents and an unnecessary delay by the planning Mr Minister, Matthew Guy, the Bald Hills wind farm has finally received approval to go ahead after the VCAT decision on August 3, 2012.

This is a win for common sense, due process and the environment and hopefully a nail in the coffin of politically supported wind farm opposition and climate change denial.

Hopefully preparatory work will commence on South Gippsland's third wind farm before the end of August.
