Application for modification to Project Approval- April 2014

http://majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=6470

Construction of the Gullen Range Wind Farm (GRWF) has been conducted in accordance with the approved Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) and the Conditions of Project Approval granted by the NSW Land and Environment Court in August 2010.

Following selection of the wind turbine infrastructure and appointment of the project contractors, the wind farm’s Final Design was developed through a comprehensive design review. The review took into account a range of factors that influence individual  wind turbine placement within the overall wind farm layout. Some of the Final Design locations of wind turbines have been subject to adjustment in order to minimise environmental impacts at turbine sites, maximise engineering benefits and ensure that social impacts for surrounding properties comply with the Project Approval.

To confirm the acceptability of the minor adjustments to turbine locations, Gullen Range Wind Farm Pty Ltd (GRWFPL) has submitted a Modification Application and Environmental Assessment, March 2014 (the Modification) to NSW Planning and Infrastructure (P&I). This seeks modification of the Project Approval under Section 75W of the Environment Planning & Assessment Act 1979 in respect of turbine locations and ancillary infrastructure. The Modification can be viewed here :
