Notice- wpd Fairview Wind Project Decision
CLEARVIEW, ON- On February 11, 2016 Clearview Township received a legal notice that the wpd Canada Fairview Wind Project has been granted Renewable Energy Approval by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. As a result of the approval, the court hearing scheduled for February 12, 2016 has been cancelled.
“We [Clearview Township] are extremely disappointed that the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change has granted wpd Canada a Renewable Energy Approval for the Fairview Wind Project” stated Clearview Township Mayor Christopher Vanderkruys.
Over the past eight years, Clearview Township has clearly expressed an unwillingness to host the wpd Fairview Wind Project. Significant resources and time have been invested into ensuring that the project would not be approved.
Clearview Township, Chief Administrative Officer Stephen Sage stated that “the municipality will be contacting our legal team to identify any possible next steps.”
