WA draft position statement on renewable energy facilities released
June 7, 2018
The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) has released a draft position statement on renewable energy facilities for public comment.
The draft statement outlines key planning and environmental considerations for the location, siting and design of renewable energy facilities.
It aims to facilitate appropriate development of renewable energy facilities while minimising any potential impact upon the environment and valued landscapes. It also encourages informed public engagement early in the renewable energy facility planning process.
This statement, once finalised, will replace the existing Planning Bulletin 67 Guidelines for Wind Farm Development (2004).
