St Patricks Plains Wind Farm Update - December 2020

New layout near completion

Over the past few months, based on findings from specialist studies and extensive community consultation, we have been working on a revision of the turbine layout for the proposed St Patricks Plains Wind Farm south-east of Miena.

The design of wind farm projects is often refined and improved throughout the planning process as information comes to hand. Work on refining the site design of the St Patricks Plains Wind Farm is now nearing completion and will be shared with the community via an update followed by local community information sessions in early 2021.

Community information sessions

Local information sessions will be held in January 2021, and interested members of the local community will have the opportunity to review the new site design with the project team, discuss any concerns and ask questions. Details below:

  • Bothwell - Friday, 29 January 2021, Club Rooms, Bothwell Recreation Ground, 26 Hollow Tree Rd, Bothwell.
  • Miena - Saturday, 30 January 2021, Great Lake Community Centre, 55-57 Cider Gum Road, Miena.

All are welcome. If you would like to register early interest for one of these sessions and be notified directly as soon as times are confirmed please email the project team: Donna Bolton on or Sandra Weinhold on
