Planning

OSMI will maintain open and transparent communication around the DWF. During the pre-planning phase this includes:

  • Publishing the results of preliminary technical assessments as they become available
  • Progress updates
  • How to make a complaint
  • Predicted operational impacts including noise and visual impacts

Preliminary Technical Assessments

OSMI is releasing the preliminary impact assessments that are informing the project design prior to any formal planning permit application(s) to provide transparency to the community through this early stage of project development. Note that the preliminary assessments are referencing the Revised Design for the project (covering up to 35 wind turbines) and the project design is likely to change prior to a formal planning application. As such, the assessment outcomes may change as the assessments are progressed from a preliminary stage to final assessment reports.
