Community Overview

Biala Wind Farm is committed to supporting the community. Your feedback is very important to us. Please contact us if you would like to have a chat.

A Community Consultative Committee has been established for the Project. The Community Consultative Committee (or CCC) is a committee made up of representatives from the Upper Lachlan Shire Council, the community, wind farm representatives and other Project stakeholders. The CCC enables information flow to and from the community about the wind farm.

We are dedicated to supporting the local community, some examples of this can be seen on our news page.

Once operational, Biala Wind Farm will contribute approximately $90,000 per year into a Community Enhancement Fund for community projects.

In addition, Biala Wind Farm sponsors local events and community groups. In 2020, such sponsorships include the Crookwell Senior Green Devils Rugby League Club, the Gunning Arts Festival, the Australian Agricultural Centre’s bake-off competition and the 142nd Crookwell Show.  Contact us if you would like to know more.

Biala Wind Farm produces regular newsletters to inform the community on how we are progressing and what the next stages are.  Also, if you live nearby and are interested in receiving construction or project updates by text message to your phone, please contact us here.  Our team is dedicated to ensuring the local and surrounding community understands the Project. We appreciate that good communication can assist in minimising any inconvenience you might experience during the construction of the wind farm.

Minibus tours are currently being run at our Gullen Range Wind and Solar Farm. If you would like to learn more about this tour of a wind farm and how to book click here.

Some added benefits from the Project include the refurbishment of roads in the area. Major roadworks are planned to rehabilitate pavements. Pavements will be rehabilitated on Kialla Road for 2km and over 7km on Range Road. Several causeways on these roads will also be replaced with culverts, which will result in a smoother drive.
