  • Provide opportunities for the local community to raise concerns;
  • Demonstrate how all social and environmental impacts of the site will be managed;
  • Maintain transparency in the project design and permitting process;
  • Identify opportunities for local business involvement in the implementation of the project;
  • Provide feedback on how input from the local community will influence the final project;

  • Meetings with Narrunga Nations and Kaurna Nations;
  • Presentations to Progress Associations and information for their newsletters;
  • Project Newsletters;
  • Project fact sheets and frequently asked questions;

  • Two community open days were held, the first in October 2011 and the second in December 2011, to outline the project, seek expressions of interest to be involved in the project, listen to local issues and provide fact sheets detailing the project and the approval process;
  • A project website was established;
  • A toll-free information line was provided during the development application process to ensure the community could contact Senvion at no personal cost to them;
  • Project articles and advertorials have been placed in the Yorke Peninsula Country Times to keep the community informed;
  • Information days were held at Curramulka, Port Vincent and Port Julia in January 2013 to help keep everyone informed and up to date on the project, development application and proposed layout as well as listen to local issues and answer any questions.
