Bowmans Creek

Epuron is a signatory to the Clean Energy Council’s Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Projects, which is a commitment to engage respectfully with communities, be sensitive to environmental and cultural values, and make a positive contribution to the regions in which we operate. We also recognise the importance of earning social licence for the project, which has been defined as a "level of acceptance or approval continually granted to an organisation's operations or project by the local community" (Boutilier and Thomson).

We aim to address concerns in a timely manner and where practicable incorporate community input to deliver improved project outcomes and lasting benefits.

Community Consultative Committee

The Bowmans Creek Wind Farm project has a Community Consultative Committee (CCC).

The important role of a CCC for State significant projects in NSW is outlined in the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment's CCC information page and CCC Guidelines.

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

  • Kept informed of the status of the project
  • Consulted on plans and proposed changes
  • Able to provide feedback on any issues that may arise

Independent chair for the CCC is William Paradice and the full members list is here.

Minutes from CCC meetings are tabled by the CCC and once provided to Epuron are uploaded to the project website. Download minutes from CCC meetings via the links below:
