Project representatives Medard Boutry (Development Manager) & Julie Dargan (Stakeholder Engagement Manager) are excited to be heading to the inaugural “Hay Education & Employment Expo” at the NSW TAFE from 5pm – 8pm on 9th November 2023.
The event will be attended by current and future local and regional businesses with employment and training opportunities showcased. Come along to find out more.
Thank you to those who attended our information sessions held in Balranald, Hay and Moulamein on Tuesday the 12th and Wednesday the 13th of September.
We were fortunate enough to meet many members of the community who provided beneficial insight to our project team.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent in the area, and we look forward to future engagement opportunities.
Baldon Wind Farm is in early stages of development, with work started on detailed environmental site surveys and indicative project design. The project would be located on the Hay Plains in NSW, approx. 13km north of Moulamein, 55km east of Balranald and 75km southwest of Hay. The project lies withing the South-West Renewable Energy Zone (SWREZ) and could include 150-200 turbines.
Community and Economic Benefits
The project would bring significant investment into the local area, particularly during construction of the wind farm. Economic benefits would include job creation, opportunities for local business and flow-on benefits. Once the project is operational, benefits would continue with long term jobs, ongoing operations and maintenance contracts and the establishment of community benefit sharing initiatives.
We are keen to hear from the community how the project could maximise benefits for the local community. Please fill out our online Feedback Form or you can contact us directly using the form at the bottom of this page.
You can provide comments on what you value the most about your community, any concerns or feedback through our online Feedback Form or you can contact us directly using the form at the bottom of this page.
All feedback received, whether at information sessions or via the Feedback Form, will be considered in the design of the proposed project and inform future methods and scope of engagement with the local community. The community feedback and our response will be summarised in the EIS to be submitted to the DPE. We always welcome any suggestions you may have about how we might better engage with the local communities in the area.
Community Consultative Committee
A Community Consultative Committee (CCC) will be established prior to the start of construction to keep the community involved on the progress of the project. The purpose of the CCC is to provide a forum for open discussion between representatives of the project, the community, councils and other stakeholders.
If you are interested in being a part of the CCC, please contact us using the form at the bottom of the page.
If you would like to ask a question or request any further information, please fill out the form to the right. We will respond as soon as possible.
