The development application for the Lord Howe Island Hybrid Renewable Energy Project, Stage 2 - Installation of Wind Turbines, was approved by the Board at their November 2016 meeting, under a Deferred Commencement arrangement, whereby the project team needs to meet 4 conditions, before returning to the Board for a final decision. Many of the documents submitted as part of the Development Application are below. In addition, the Submissions Report is also provided, summarising the public submissions received and the project team’s response to address them.
The wind turbine aspect of the project is now proceeding to tendering to select the preferred type and number of wind turbines. Following this, a revised noise impact assessment and visual impact assessment will be undertaken. In addition, the Adaptive Management Plan for the wind turbines is to be prepared. As part of this, a panel of technical experts and community representatives will be convened to assist in preparing the Plan through the first half of 2017, and then overseeing the implementation of the Plan during construction and operation.
