Wind Farm Legal Fight

'A group, including affected farmers, will take on planning minister Richard Wynne and the project's proponent West-wind Energy at trial after the $1.5 billion Golden Plains wind farm northwest of Geelong was ticked off by the state and federal governments. Objector Hamish Cumming, and Rokewood farmers Adam Walton and Kellie Walton, who are also behind the challenge, say the number of turbines included in the project should be reduced from 228 to about 130 to protect the brolga bird that breed in the area.'-Chad Van Estrop-Geelong Advertiser.
