Questions without notice concluded.
On 18 October 2011 the Hon. Robert Borsak asked the Minister for Finance and Services, representing the Minister for Planning and Infrastructure, a question without notice regarding wind turbines. The Minister for Planning and Infrastructure provided the following response:
The origin of proponents of wind farms, in terms of whether they are Australian owned or not, is not a relevant consideration under the Planning Act.
There is only one approved wind farm within the stated region, being the 15 turbine Conroy's Gap Wind Farm. This is owned by Origin Energy, which is understood to be headquartered in Sydney.
