Southgate council heard more opposition to its decision to be an unwilling host to wind turbines.

Several delegations to council argued in favour of a wind project, stating that wind turbines do not reduce property values or cause health problems.

The proponent to the wind project, Samsung – Pattern Energy, expressed disappointment that the project was cut off with little or no warning under pressure from influences from outside the township.

Southgate Council made no comment on the arguments from the delegations.
