Big Wind Buys Houses & Bulldozes Them …
… And then denies there is a problem
In a letter critising ABC’s Stateline TV programme, Andrew Chapman says:
The noise problem experienced by residents near the Toora wind farm began more than 4 years ago.
Early in 2007 Stanwell, Queensland Government owners of the Toora wind farm, bought Les Osbourne’s house which was about 600 metres or so from the nearest turbine and then bulldozed the house. Les was originally in favour of Stanwell building turbines all around him, believing the spin about there not being any noise problems. In fact he signed the petition in favour of the windfarm 5 times. Once the wind farm was built he started to suffer from the noise.
