South Gippsland Shire Council supports Meridian Energy application

Correction: The South Gippsland Shire Council in the state of Victoria, Australia, has not withdrawn its support for an application by New Zealand based Meridian Energy for wind monitoring towers as reported last month (Furore sparks call for state moratorium, Windpower Monthly, May 2002). The council will defend its decision to grant the company's application for planning permits for the monitoring towers. That decision is subject to an appeal by members of the community which will be heard by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. A date for the hearing has not been set. The council has, however, reversed its policy to "encourage" wind projects outside of the Silcocks Hill region and will now "discourage" them. Windpower Monthly regrets the error in reporting the council's decision on the Meridian Energy application. The error was introduced during editing of the article.
