A community consultation plan (CCP) has been developed for the Wollar Solar Farm proposal. The aim of the plan is to:
- Identify effective methods to inform the community about the Wollar Solar Farm
- Facilitate engagement with the community, including allowing meaningful contributions from the community into the environmental assessment and project development.
- Obtain social license to operate from the local community, allowing for good long‐term relationships with community stakeholders
This plan has been developed to coincide with the early planning and assessment stages of the project. If the project is approved, consultation will also be required to continue into the construction and operational phases of the project. These phases will require a new or updated plan, to reflect any changes to consultation objectives but also the increasing knowledge gained about the community. At this stage, only pre-approval project stages are addressed.
