The NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment has now completed its evaluation of the proposed Jindera Solar Farm and provided it to the Independent Planning Commission NSW for determination.
In line with regulatory requirements introduced in response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Commission is not holding face-to-face public meetings at this time. To ensure interested individuals and/or groups can still have their say on the Jindera Solar Farm, the Commission will conduct a public meeting remotely by video conference (with an option to participate by telephone).
Commissioners Andrew Hutton (Panel Chair) and Professor Zada Lipman have been appointed to determine this state significant development application. They will host the electronic Public Meeting from 10am AEDT on Friday 27 November 2020 to hear directly from community members.
If you wish to apply to speak at the electronic Public Meeting, you must complete an expression of interest form available on our website by no later than 5pm AEDT on Friday 20 November 2020. Once speakers who wish to participate in the Public Meeting are registered, the Commission will provide additional information about the technical details and process to assist them.
This electronic Public Meeting will be live-streamed on the Commission’s website: www.ipcn.nsw.gov.au/livestream. If you have no or limited internet access, you’ll be able to listen to a live audio stream of proceedings by dialing 1800 093 431 and entering the following PIN: 10126195#
In the interests of openness and transparency, a transcript of the public meeting will also be published on the Commission’s website.
If you want to have your say on this project but are unable to participate in the Public Meeting, you can submit your comments in writing to the Commission up to one week (seven days) after the Public Meeting via email, post or our online portal: www.ipcn.nsw.gov.au/have-your-say. The deadline for written submissions is 5pm AEDT on Friday 4 December 2020.
Written comments are weighed the same as spoken presentations.
We recognise the importance of community participation in our decision-making process. Using our ‘Make a submission’ form is the easiest way for you to make a submission on cases currently before the Commission.
