Residents withdraw Hallett wind farm objections

This comes from the ABC.

Posted December 08, 2011

Six mid-north residents have withdrawn their appeal against development of the Willogoleche Hill wind farm near Hallett in South Australia.

They had been challenging a decision last July by the Development Assessment Panel of Goyder Council to approve 11 more turbines for the project, taking the total to 37.

The residents had told the the Environment Resources and Development Court their objections were based on potential health concerns, decreased land values, their view and likely noise.

Out-of-court agreements have been reached between the developer and the residents.

The matter will be formally withdrawn next month.
