Tur­bine trou­bles

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

THROUGH your pa­per I would like draw res­i­dents’ at­ten­tion to the im­pli­ca­tions of a re­cent Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil de­ci­sion to ap­prove the erec­tion of a wind pow­ered tur­bine on a res­i­den­tial block at Dingo Beach.

The tur­bine stands ap­prox­i­mately 14 me­ters above the nat­u­ral ground level and de­pend­ing on wind strength can be noisy. The im­pli­ca­tions of coun­cil’s de­ci­sion is that any­one can erect one of th­ese tur­bines on any block of land at any height any­where in the shire.

Think about what the im­pact would be on land val­u­a­tions should one of th­ese be erected in front of, along­side of or be­hind you. Frank Spencer Dingo Beach
