Planning and Approvals

Bango Wind Farm is a State Significant Development

Bango Wind Farm was first publicly announced in 2011 and a Preliminary Environmental Assessment was prepared for upwards of 100 wind turbines within the (then) Boorowa and Yass Valley Council areas. Due to changes in the energy market at the time, the project Development Application was not formally lodged and the project was transitioned to the State Significant Development process. In November 2015, revised Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) were issued. The Commonwealth Government also issued Environmental Assessment Requirements for the Project to be assessed as a controlled action under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, using the Accredited Assessment approach.

In September 2016, the Environmental Impact Statement for Bango Wind Farm, with up to 118 turbines, was exhibited and public feedback sought. In response to submissions received, the project was reduced to 75 turbine locations via an Amended Development Application.

As of December 2018, the Project has approval for the construction of up to 46 wind turbines.
