What this
will look like from where you live

Keen to see how the turbines will look from your place?

You’ll find us at the Walcha Street Stall this Friday and Saturday (22-23 October), fill out a new petition, or just come along and learn more. All welcome.


What this will look like
from where you live

We have engaged the services of a professional Sketchup Modeller to create a model of the wind turbines in the Winterbourne project, and place them on the terrain generated by Google Earth.

While these will not look like an artists impression, it is an accurate way of determining how many turbines you will see, how much of each turbine, how close they are and which direction they are from you.

It is not as pretty as a painting or a mock up from a developer’s brochure, but it IS ACCURATE, and will be more revealing than a developer’s montage.

We are trying to make this simple and available to everyone to view at your leisure, however for the time being, the easiest way is to give us a call and we can drop out and demonstrate with a laptop – for your location. We will also be doing this publicly for anyone who is interested, by arrangement. Call Cameron Greig 0428 534 270, or email cgreig71@gmail.com for a viewing. We might do a few sessions in town.

But ... if you are a self-confessed nerd, and want to do this yourself, there is a procedure.

(By the way, if you have chosen to do this, pats on the back all round, but get a cuppa).

More importantly, it can be viewed from wherever you like, in whatever direction you like, at your leisure.

Step 1

Now, to see the rendition of the towers from your location….

Step 2

For Example ….

From ground level, in the main roundabout at Walcha (cnr Fitzroy and Derby), looking north.
Note that the render does not include buildings, trees etc. It only includes the terrain, and the turbine models.

2nd example, from the southern end of the Apsley falls walk around the rim, looking north.
These turbines will be within 2.5km of the Apsley falls lookout point.
