Project to enter planning process soon
Epuron is in the process of designing the initial wind turbine layout and then will lodge a Notice of Intent (NoI) for the project with the Environment Protection Authority Tasmania (EPA). Lodging the NoI will enter the project into the planning and assessment process.
The proposal will also be referred to the Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) for review under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
The EPA will use the NoI and DAWE’s input to determine Project Specific Guidelines, which will outline the studies required for the project’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) such as assessments for biodiversity, heritage, visual, noise and transport .
Questions and comments
Epuron values input from members of the local community and other interested parties to help shape the project and maximise benefits. Questions and comments are welcome at any time and can be sent to the project team via email or the online feedback form.
