SEARs for the proposed Mallee Wind Farm project issued

20 February 2023

Spark Renewables has received the NSW Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) for the proposed Mallee Wind Farm. The SEARs will guide the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement as part of the development application process.

We are pleased to be progressing to the next stage of the comprehensive NSW planning approval process*, which will involve detailed studies and close consultation with the community and authorities.

Key studies that will be carried out include:

  • Investigations of biodiversity
  • Cultural heritage
  • Visual amenity
  • Noise and vibration
  • Hazards
  • Land
  • Social impacts

This is an important step that will help us better understand and refine our site and ultimately build a great project.

The detailed documentation of the project SEARs can be viewed and downloaded on the NSW Planning Portal on this page.
