Re: Proposed Flyers Creek Wind Farm, Blayney Local Government Area
Application reference: MP 08_0252
The Flyers Creek Wind Turbine Awareness Group Inc. (FCWTAG) is comprised of a large group of concerned residents of the Blayney Local Government Area.
We object to the Proposed Flyers Creek Wind Farm (“the proposal”) in the strongest possible terms. We believe this development [by wind energy giant, Infigen] is totally inappropriate.
This submission details our objections.
The FCWTAG requests that representatives of the group be given the opportunity to speak at the Planning Assessment Commission hearing related to this proposal.

The report insists that the World Health Organization’s “Precautionary Principle” must be followed. (In fact, the WHO’s Precautionary Principle is being ignored by governments and wind developers the world over.)
