Nominations open for community committee

Expressions of interest invited for CCC

Epuron is establishing a Community Consultative Committee (CCC) for the Burrendong Wind Farm.

The CCC will provide an important forum for discussion between the project team and the local community, and help to ensure local residents and stakeholders are:

  • Kept informed of the status of the project, any new initiatives and Epuron's performance
  • Consulted on plans and proposed changes
  • Able to provide feedback on any issues that may arise

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) has appointed Garry West as independent chair for the Burrendong Wind Farm CCC. Mr West will oversee the member selection process and is now inviting expressions of interest from individuals who would like to represent the community as a member of the Burrendong Wind Farm CCC.

  • Contribute constructively to committee discussions
  • Attend approximately four meetings a year
  • Share information about the project with the broader community
  • Agree to a Code of Conduct and sign a Declaration of personal interests
