There are a number of important steps in the planning process
There are many specific requirements that must be met before the government will approve the construction of a wind farm, and OSMI is designing the project to not only meet those requirements, but exceed those requirements where possible.
Prior to lodging an application to build a wind farm a referral must be made to the Victorian Minister for Planning to determine if an Environmental Effects Statement (EES) is required for the project and to Commonwealth Government to determine if approval is required under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act 1999.

Planning Permit Application
The Project requires a Planning Application under the provisions of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 within the Latrobe, South Gippsland and Baw Baw Planning Schemes.
The Minister for Planning is the Responsible Authority for assessing and determining this planning permit application pursuant to Clause 72.01 within each Planning Scheme (as it is a Renewable Energy Facility with an installed capacity of 1 megawatt or greater and for Utility Installations used to store, transmit or distribute electricity generated by a renewable energy facility with an installed capacity of 1 megawatt or greater).
