ENA Report on EMF Quells Powerline Fears

The Energy Networks Association, Australia's peak energy body, has published an informative report: Electric & Magnetic Fields - What We Know. It surely puts to rest the ill-founded fears of health risks from overhead power lines.

It can be downloaded from the ENA website at

Happily, Moreton Bay Regional Council has had the good sense to scrap the unjustified policies of the former Pine Rivers and Caboolture Shire Councils, which restricted development near Energex's and Powerlink's transmission lines. In the light of the ENA report, Council's new Planning Scheme policies are soundly based.
