The council of Lääne-Nigula decided not to come to the Risti wind farm

On Thursday, Lääne-Nigula City Council decided to terminate the special plan for the Risti wind farm, which means rejecting the Eesti Energia project.

13 members of the council voted in favor of completing the preparation of the special plan, five council members voted against. The council held a roll-call vote.

Residents of Risti, Piirsalu, Kuijõe and Seljaküla collected 1,100 votes against the construction of the wind farm, of which 670 were residents of Lääne-Nigula.

Mikk Lõhmus, the mayor of Lääne-Nigula and Neeme Suur, the chairman of the council, also opposed the construction of the cross wind farm. Lõhmus and Suur found that the wind farm is damaging the living environment of the municipality, and they also found that the preparation of a special plan has been legally unsuccessful.

Enefit Green is appealing the council’s decision to the court.
