What is a Community Reference Group (CRG)?

 

The CRG provides an important forum for open discussion between representatives of Moorabool Wind Farm, the local Communities, Local Council and other interested stakeholders.

It provides a way for the project team to give regular updates on wind farm activities, invite discussion and proactively respond to any questions or concerns of the community.

 

Why appoint a CRG?

 

The CRG will be crucial in ensuring positive engagement between the local community and the project owners, allowing the Project team to remain closely connected with community views.

Ideally community representatives should be able to provide feedback to their local community and associated stakeholder groups.

 

How does it work?

 

Approximately 8 members will be appointed including a Chairperson.

Meetings will be held regularly from conception through to the commissioning of the wind farm and then throughout the Operation if desired.

The Group will operate to specific Terms of Reference and a Code of Conduct.

Terms of Reference can be found here.
