Genuine Community Engagement
CWP Renewables is committed to genuine community consultation and developing strong relationships with local landowners and the wider community.
Consultation relating to the proposed Parkesbourne Solar Farm project commenced in early 2018, and to date has included conversations and meetings with potential host landowners, neighbouring landowners, TransGrid, Goulburn-Mulwarre Council and the Hon. Pru Goward (NSW Member for Goulburn).
Ongoing consultation will be stimulated with a range of stakeholders through the submission of the Preliminary Environmental Assessment. Further, in preparing the development application, consultation will commence or continue with relevant local, State and/or Commonwealth authorities, infrastructure providers, community groups and affected landowners. The issues raised and resolutions found through this process will be documented in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
