Notice- WPD Canada Fairview Wind Project Update

CLEARVIEW, ON- Clearview Township has received legal notice that the board of directors for WPD Canada has decided against appealing the decision of the Environmental Review Tribunal to revoke the Renewable Energy Approval for the Fairview Wind Project located in Clearview Township.

“This marks the end of a long effort to protect the Township’s natural landscape and aviation industry at the Collingwood Regional Airport,” explained Mayor Christopher Vanderkruys. “It’s unfortunate that the Province and this process forced the municipality to contribute such significant resources towards an issue that could have been addressed through proper consultation and deliberation” stated Mayor Vanderkruys. “On behalf of Clearview Township, I would like to extend my gratitude to the County of Simcoe, Town of Collingwood, Preserve Clearview, John Wiggins, Kevin and Gail Elwood and all other involved parties for their effort, expertise, and commitment throughout the process”.

Information regarding the revocation of the Renewable Energy Approval is available on the Environment & Land Tribunals website at: http://elto.gov.on.ca/tribunals/ert/decisions-orders/
