The Palmerston North City Council has rejected NZ Windfarms’ application for changes in some conditions to the Land Use Consent for the Te Rere Hau wind farm.

The council says the noise output is too high.

The company says it’s reviewing this decision in association with its legal advisers and considering how it will respond.

It operates 97 turbines on sites located in rows along a series of spurs radiating off the main Tararua ridgeline.
