Final say on Keyneton wind farm development

Developer Pacific Hydro invites the community to attend the final information stand to discuss the proposed Keyneton wind farm next Tuesday, May 8.

The Victorian-based company is seeking to develop 42 wind turbines at the Sedan Hill ranges.

The company’s general manager Lane Crockett said, “Pacific Hydro is committed to ensuring the community is fully informed about the proposal and this will be our final information stand before we lodge our application to the Development Assessment Commission”.

The drop-in style gathering will be held at the Cambrai School community library, 1 Main Street, Cambrai from 10am to 3pm.

Mr Crockett said, “Feel free to drop in at any time to discuss any questions you have. At this session, the community engagement team will have visual amenity maps, traffic maps and other information relating to the proposal,” he said.

This session will be the last public information session before the company lodges their application to the DAC.

“If we have your contact details we will notify you of the application date as soon as possible and once lodged, our application will be available to view on our website.”

Pacific Hydro’s consultation to date has included three consultation sessions, follow-up information stands, tours to the operating Clements Gap wind farm, visits to the proposed site, and several meetings and on-going one-on-one contact.

“We have made significant design changes and reduced the number of turbines proposed by 30 per cent since our initial layout that was discussed with immediate neighbours in 2009,” he said.

“Even though this will be the last information stand, our community engagement co-ordinator is always available to discuss the proposal over the phone.”

If you are unable to make this date due to work or other commitments, Wednesday, May 9 is free for individual meetings.

If you would like to meet individually or have any questions about the proposal or the information session, please feel free to contact community engagement co-ordinator Chloe Carpenter on 03 8621 6428.
