Social and economic impact assessment

As you may be aware, Epuron Projects Pty Ltd is proposing a wind farm on land at St Patricks Plains in the Central Highlands. The project requires approval from the Central Highlands Council, the Environment Protection Authority and the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, requiring preparation of an environmental impact statement. Currently a number of studies relating to flora and fauna, wedge-tailed eagles, traffic, heritage, socio-economic factors, noise and visual impacts are being undertaken for inclusion in the environmental impact statement.

As part of this assessment, Pitt&Sherry are seeking community feedback to inform the community profile and to gather information about community concerns or interest in the project.

A cover letter and feedback form is attached to this email and we would greatly appreciate your assistance by returning this form, or providing your input in an alternative way that suits.

Thank you for your ongoing assistance.
