Minor tree clearing and pruning works

Minor tree clearing and pruning works will be occurring on Whitefields Road during the last two weeks of August 2019. These works are part of a number of pre-construction activities that will occur in preparation for the commencement of construction of the Coppabella Wind Farm in late 2019. These works are scheduled to occur prior to the Superb Parrot breeding period to avoid disturbance of the species during that period.

The works will occur in accordance with the approved Roadside Vegetation Management and Landscaping Plan. This Plan was developed in consultation with the Yass Valley Council and has been approved by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. Additionally, the works, and the construction of the wind farm project, will be undertaken in accordance with the planning permit, endorsed management plans, and all other relevant legislation and regulations which manage and control construction activities in NSW.

Goldwind Australia place a high importance on road safety for all road users and acknowledges the necessity for all road users to drive to the current road conditions. Traffic management will be in place to manage any impacts on the local roads.

The project team aims to continue to keep local disruption to a minimum and we would like to thank the local community for their support of the project to date. We will provide regular updates outlining the construction progress once the project enters the construction phase. We encourage interested community members to drop into the project information centre in Binalong if they have questions or feedback about the project.
