Council acknowledges that infrastructure of this height is not the desired aesthetic intended for our coastal townships. Construction of the wind turbine did not require planning approval. Council exhausted all available planning avenues including writing to the Minister for Planning to intervene.

The new wind turbine on private property near Bass Coast surf beach would have similar impacts like this wind turbine at Cullerin Range Wind Farm in New South Wales

Local law compliance

Now it has been erected, if it is found that the turbine breaches any compliance requirement or council's local law, such as:

  • Height
  • Noise
  • Commercial in nature
  • Used for advertising purposes, etc

The council will pursue all enforcement options available to ensure the breach is fully rectified.
