Palmerston North City ratepayers have unwittingly been subjected to a multi year conspiracy by Government, hand in glove with PNCC, to flood the local urban environment with gigantic turbines, 53 metre high transmission towers and a substation right on top of the ranges itself. To achieve this, lies, obfuscation and the deliberate withholding of information has been the order of the day. This is an unprecedented scandal.
PNCC, heavily in debt, now realising that it has irreparably damaged the rateable value of hundreds of residential properties under the 60 consented turbines, embarked on a programme to take 1100 ratepayers from Manawatu to compensate for this loss. This has been done but with widespread opposition.
Oh! what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive!
