Permission has been granted for the construction of Taranaki's first windfarm.

Tararua Wind Power Ltd now has resource consents for 10 years to begin work on a $325 million, 48-turbine wind farm on the coast between Waverley and Patea, if it decides to go ahead.

A decision was announced on Friday by the trio of independent commissioners who heard submissions for and against the plan by  the firm, (formerly Trustpower), in May.
