Planning Approvals & Technical Assessments
Under Victorian law a planning permit is required to construct a wind energy facility and, depending on the location and impacts of the proposal, approval may also be required from the Commonwealth Government.
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.
OSMI is committed to maintaining open and transparent communication about all aspects of planning process for the Delburn Wind Farm. This includes:
- Publishing all technical assessments as they become available
- Publishing all application documents materials when they are submitted to the Approval Authorities
- Providing information on predicted operational impacts including noise and visual impacts
- Providing information on how the community can participate in the planning process
