A COMMUNITY group of concerned citizens has formed in the wake of Snowy River Shire Council approving a development application for a 16-turbine wind farm at Snowy Plain.

OPPONENTS of the proposed Denmark windfarm claim the community is being unnecessarily divided by claims and counter-claims over the suitability of the Ocean Beach site. They say there has been a distortion of the facts, and have defended the Denmark Shire's rejection of the proposal. Land surveyor Peter Mortimer said the community had already shown it was strongly against the Wilson's Head site chosen by Denmark Community Windfarm Inc (DCW).
THE future of the $600 million Macarthur Wind Farm project has been threatened by the construction of two small farmstay units on a neighbouring property.
The final legal barrier to building the Awhitu Wind Farm has now been removed following the withdrawal of an appeal to the High Court.
