COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT


In February 2020 the decision was made to not progress with the inclusion of the landfill area in the project. Since then, we have been revising the layout in order to move forward with the development across the remainder of the site. A planning application was submitted in December 2020.

We hosted virtual public exhibition ahead of our application submission.

The exhibition can be accessed here.

This provided the opportunity to view and comment on the proposals.

If you are unable to access the digital exhibition please email info@coomgreenenergy.com or call 021 471 3932.
