The wind farm site is approximately 40 km inland from the coast and 30km from the nearest National or State park. Located in the Shire of Corangamite about 7km south east of Camperdown and 10km south east of Terang, the project site (approximately 470ha) consists of cleared agricultural land used for intensive dairy farming. One of Corangamite Shire’s landfill dumps adjoins the site. It is anticipated that up to 21 wind turbines, totaling up to 42MW could be accommodated at the site.
The wind farm was approved by the Minister of Planning initially in August 2006. The project is currently the subject of an application for review before VCAT.
