The South Gippsland Shire have confirmed they’re investigating the leak of a private email from council CEO Tim Tamlin.
The email explained the reasons why the council was delaying the search for a suitable consultant to test noise levels produced by the Bald Hills Wind Farm at Tarwin Lower, after a Supreme Court ruling to do so.
In her weekly column, South Gippsland Mayor Lorraine Brunt expressed her disappointment that a councillor may have leaked the email to the media.
Mr Tamlin says the council is also investigating why the email to councillors was leaked. Mayor Brunt has warned of severe consequences if a councillor is found to be responsible for it.
