Stockyard Hill Wind Farm recognises the importance of community consultation throughout the development of the project, with feedback from the consultation process helping to inform and shape the project.
Throughout the development of the project, we have and will continue to provide regular updates and project information via letterbox drop of project newsletters, the website, displays at community events, as well as ongoing visits with people living in the area.
To encourage anyone interested in the project to have a say, a range of methods have been developed so that people can provide feedback to us directly. We are happy to arrange a presentation for a community group, or a meeting for smaller numbers. We are also happy to provide information either by phone, email or post.
As part of the development of the project, we are continuing to make visits to neighbouring residences and holding one-on-one meetings to actively listen to the community’s views on the project. Feedback from the community has been considered alongside technical and environmental assessments, and has influenced the design of the proposed wind farm.
Consultation with the community and stakeholders will continue throughout the life of the project.
As works are soon to commence, the construction of the wind farm is a huge process which involves many people in designing, building and commissioning of Australia’s largest wind farm.
Soon, residents in the area will see increased activity on local roads and on land leading to future wind turbines.
We intend to provide fortnightly updates to the local community to ensure you are kept up to date with works.
