Newsletter #4: Construction hours notice
1 August 2019
Trenching and piling have recently commenced at the Bomen Solar Farm and it is expected that the first installation of panels will begin on August 23.
From August 26, the first major influx of local employees will begin working on the solar farm. The workforce will continue to grow until the end of September when there will be approximately 200 workers onsite, the vast majority of whom will be local.
The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and the Environment recently granted an extension to construction hours on Saturdays to allow general works to be extended from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. until November 16. This will not include piling.
Thank you to all those neighbours who supported this application. The boundary areas and some internal spaces have been sprayed and prepared for landscape planting. The planting of the 5,000 seedlings will commence on August 19.
