This development is being assessed under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC) process by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE).
Currently, the approval process has reached the stage of awaiting on the Minister for the Environment to approve the publication of the draft Public Environment Report (PER). Once released, this will be opened to public comment. When this occurs, community members will have their opportunity to submit their views on the development via the DAWE online portal. (Link will be provided once we reach that stage).
Wide ranging issues that the developer must address in the PER are outlined in the ‘Guidelines for the content of a draft Public Environment Report – Chalumbin Wind Farm’ document which can be viewed in full here: https://img1.wsimg.com/blobby/go/c4c6caef-d346-479c-8ad7-2bda6d0a8491/downloads/2021-8983-Finalised-Guidelines.pdf?ver=1644511702376
