community

The Rugby Wind Farm project team is committed to effective and genuine engagement with the local community, and is undertaking a comprehensive and detailed consultation process, which includes:

  • keeping the local community and key stakeholders informed about the proposal;
  • listening to and acknowledging the concerns of members of the community that are affected by the proposal;
  • understanding and responding proactively to local concerns and aspirations in a timely and appropriate way; and
  • working with stakeholders to maximise the benefits of the proposal to the local community.

There has been a significant level of engagement with the community to date, including:

  • Face to face meetings with landholders interested in the project;
  • Two newsletters distributed through a range of channels;
  • Two community information sessions to discuss preliminary details of the project;
  • A website, information line and project email address;
  • In a first for the wind industry in NSW we have opened a community information centre in Booroowa, supported by two community information officers employed from the region;
  • A set of information brochures covering the project, wind energy and the project proponents;
  • The distribution of feedback forms, directly and through the community information sessions;
  • Activity with the Industry Capability Network to target local businesses to identify opportunities to supply goods and services to the project;
  • Articles and letters in the local media, including regular project updates in the Boorowa News and the Yass Tribune;

We have established a Community Consultative Committee which will provide a forum for open discussion between representatives of the wind farm, the community, the Council and other stakeholders.
