210302 Culcairn Public Hearing Speaker Schedule v2

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment has now completed its evaluation of the proposed Culcairn 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 Culcairn 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 Tuesday 2 March 2021 to hear directly from community members.
