Rye Park Wind Farm Update

Development of the project is generally progressing to program and the key assessments, studies, and consultation activities are well underway. In the coming months the Environmental Assessment will be finalised with the communities ongoing input and is expected to be lodged with the Department around September/October in readiness for public exhibition.

The first Community Consultation Committee (CCC) meeting for the wind farm was held at Yass Council Chambers on 27 June. Membership of the CCC seeks representation from local council, involved and uninvolved landowners, local community groups and the project proponent. The CCC has been established as a forum for discussion and feedback on issues directly relating to the assessment and development of the wind farm. Councillor David Needham from Yass Valley Council is Chair of the CCC.
