Specimen Hill Wind Farm Update - March 2021
Assessment studies underway
Epuron is preparing a development application for the proposed Specimen Hill Wind Farm, north-west of Kroombit Tops National Park and approximately 25km north-east of Biloela in central Queensland.
The onsite technical studies required for the application are nearing completion and Epuron is establishing agreements with the site’s Traditional Owners, the First Nations Bailai, Gurang, Gooreng Gooreng, Taribelang Bunda People and the Gaangalu Nation People. The project has also been referred to the Federal Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment for review under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) and determined to be a ‘controlled action’. This means it will require controlling provisions for key species and the application must also be assessed and approved under the EPBC Act.
Prior to lodging the development application and accompanying environmental assessment Epuron invites interested members of the community to join the Specimen Hill Wind Farm project team for a drop-in information session to learn more about the proposal and ask questions.
Two information sessions will be held later this month:
- Biloela - 4-6pm, Tuesday 30 March, Biloela Civic Centre Supper Room, 96 Rainbow Street.
- Calliope - 4-6pm, Wednesday 31 March, Calliope Community Centre Meeting Room, 3 Don Cameron Drive.
Please RSVP: to manage Covid-19 requirements and catering please RSVP for your preferred session to Renee at Wall Planning & Environmental Consulting by Friday 26 March: (07) 4445 5051 or firstname.lastname@example.org
