AGL Energy – the company behind the proposed Coopers Gap wind farm south-west of Kingaroy – has invited local residents to attend a meeting of the Community Consultative Committee which will be held in Bell on Thursday afternoon.
The meeting will be held at the Bell Bunya Community Centre, 71 Maxwell Street, Bell from 1:00pm-3:00pm.
Coopers Gap Wind Farm project manager Neil Cooke encouraged the community to attend the meeting to learn more about what could become the largest wind farm in Queensland.
The discussion will also include plans for a visit by local community members to AGL’s existing wind farms and the Terms of Reference for the Coopers Gap project.
The Office of the Co-ordinator-General has placed the Terms Of Reference on public exhibition until July 11 to allow the public to submit comments.
“This is your chance to have your say. We believe it’s important that the public and government agencies utilise this opportunity and provide submissions, as feedback will inform the development of an Environmental Impact Statement which is required for the project,” Mr Cooke said.
“After that, the EIS will then go on public exhibition for further feedback,” Mr Cooke said.
