The Jindera Solar Farm Environmental Impact Statement and specialist reports were put on public exhibition from 16th October 2019 to 13th November 2019. 125 submissions were received, including 11 from public authorities, 2 from private organisations and 112 from the community. The EIS documentation and submissions can be viewed on the DPIE portal.
We are now compiling the Response to Submissions report which includes further engagement, site investigation, analysis, updating of reports and exploration of further opportunities, to respond to these submissions.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment had issued a request for the response to be provided by Monday 13 January 2020. Due to the time constraints of the holiday period, and the need for some further site investigation an extension has been provided to submit the response during February. Once the Response to Submissions is submitted, the documentation will be uploaded on the DPIE portal.
Consultation with organisations, public authorities and the community is ongoing. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or comments.
