On 11th April we made our supplementary submission to Upper Lachlan Shire Council for the transmission line development. This submission is intended to address the Joint Regional Planning Panel’s request for further information, as detailed in the deferral notice issued by the panel. The Council will now assess our submission and produce a supplementary report which will be submitted to the panel. Following this, the panel will review the Council’s supplementary report and then schedule a new hearing date to determine the Transmission Line DA. Our supplementary submission can be found on our ‘Project Approvals and Documents’ page.

Upper Lachlan Shire Council will put the additional information on public exhibition after we have provided it to them. We’ll provide further updates here as they become available.
