The Moorabool council will hold a special meeting to hear people’s concerns about two wind farms proposed for the region.
The proposals are for a 17-turbine wind farm and a separate three-turbine farm.
The council has been stripped of decision making power on the 17-turbine facility, at Mount Wallace, because it exceeded the time limit for assessing the proposal.
Mayor Pat Toohey says councillors voted last night to hear the concerns of almost 150 people who made submissions on the proposals.
“People are concerned about their rights, land rights, they’re concerned about the health issues, they’re concerned about the amenity of the area, the cumulative impacts, so there’s lots of issues,” he said.
“The community are hopeful that the planning process will give them an opportunity to put their views forward.”
