CopperString (2032) Project – project change application (Hughenden workers accommodation camp)

Closed 12 Apr 2024

Opened 18 Mar 2024


Queensland's Coordinator-General invites you to have your say on an application for project change for the CopperString (2032) Project – Hughenden workers accommodation camp.

The Coordinator-General’s evaluation report on the environmental impact statement for the CopperString Project was released on 28 September 2022.

Powerlink Queensland recently submitted an application to the Coordinator-General to change the location of the previously evaluated workers accommodation camp in Hughenden. 

The change involves re-locating the workers accommodation camp, which was to be located to the north of Hughenden on Flynn Street on Lot 156 on H20323, Lot 24 and 29 on H20328 and Lot 118 on DG118, which is state owned land held in trust by Flinders Shire Council. The new proposed location is to the south of Hughenden on the Flinders Highway on Lot 129 on SP119557, which is state owned land held in trust by Flinders Shire Council.

The new workers accommodation camp is proposed to accommodate between 410 – 450 workers (with a periodic peak of 550) and will include both the Flinders substation workforce and the transmission line workforce.

The Coordinator-General will consider all properly made submissions before preparing a change report either approving or refusing the change.
