Proposed Keyneton Wind Farm Information Venues: 23-25 January 2012

18 January 2012

Pacific Hydro has prepared an updated turbine layout for the proposed Keyneton wind farm.

Details of the changes to the proposed layout have been published in local papers and as many local community members as possible have been advised of the changes which include a reduction in the number of turbines from 57 to 42.

Pacific Hydro remains committed to working with local community members to achieve the best outcomes for the local region and to this end, our Community Engagement Coordinator will be visiting the local area to host an information stand to discuss any issues, concerns or answer queries that people may continue to have about the proposed wind farm.

The dates and venues for January are:

Monday 23 January 2012
- Venue: Committee Room, Barossa Council offices, 43-51 Tanunda Road, Nuriootpa
- Times: 12:30 – 5:00pm

Wednesday 25 January 2012
- Venue: Cambrai Community Library, Main Street, Cambrai
- Times: 9:30am – 2:00pm

Local community members are encouraged to drop in at any time on these two days to discuss any questions that they may have.

Changes to the Keyneton wind farm proposal also include changes to the access routes which include not using the Angaston-Sedan Road for over dimensional vehicles.

“The changes to the layout, number of turbines, access routes and other factors have all followed community consultation and the issues and concerns for local people,” said Mr Lane Crockett, General Manger Australia.

“We are providing the information stand to keep communication channels open and to ensure that we do cover all issues and where possible alleviate any concerns regarding noise, flora and fauna and the use of local roads. We also want to be able to identify any particular issues that have yet to be raised,” said Mr Crockett.

At the information stand, updated visual amenity maps, traffic maps and other information relating to this new layout will be available.

If you are unable to make these times due to work or other commitments, Tuesday 24 January has also been set aside for individual appointments. Please phone 03 8621 6428 or send an email to ccarpenter@pacifichydro.com.au to book a time on this day.
