Closed 7 Nov 2016

Opened 26 Sep 2016

Overview

Queensland's Coordinator-General invites you to have your say on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Coopers Gap Wind Farm project.

Prepared by Coopers Gap Wind Farm Pty Ltd (a subsidiary of AGL Energy Limited), the draft EIS describes the project and its potential environmental impacts, both positive and negative. The draft EIS was prepared in accordance with terms of reference approved by the Coordinator-General.

The Coordinator-General seeks your views on the draft EIS, including the effectiveness of the strategies Coopers Gap Wind Farm Pty Ltd proposes to manage the project's environmental impacts.

The Coordinator-General will consider all properly made submissions and the draft EIS provided by the proponent, before preparing a final evaluation report either approving or refusing the project.
