Community Matters



As a long-term owner operator of wind farms, AGL is committed to being a valued member of the local community. We will develop constructive working relationships and communication channels with the community in order to build community trust and pride in the Coopers Gap wind farm. The project will contribute to a more sustainable future through the supply of renewable energy to the wider community.

Recent community research survey

In December 2012, a research survey was conducted in the local area and broader Queensland to gain a greater understanding of community attitudes towards the project. According to this survey, 63 percent of local respondents support the development of the proposed Coopers Gap Wind Farm.

Community Consultative Committee

As part of the community engagement process for the proposed Coopers Gap Wind Farm project, AGL has established a Coopers Gap Wind Farm Community Consultative Committee (CCC). The aim of the CCC is to help strengthen the community engagement process so that any arising community issues can be appropriately addressed.

The committee meets periodically to discuss planning developments as well as any community issues and concerns. It is also an opportunity for the local community to work directly with the AGL project team. The CCC is guided by the terms of reference that have been set by the committee.

The CCC is a voluntary committee which includes various stakeholder and community representatives who have an interest or connection to the project. We encourage the local community who are not members of the committee to also attend and observe the meetings. If time permits, the local community will be invited to ask any questions.

Wind Farm Façade Testing

In consultation with the Coopers Gap community, AGL engaged environmental consultants AECOM to carry out façade sound insulation attenuation testing at five residences in close proximity to the proposed Coopers Gap Wind Farm site in July 2016. The properties were selected by the Coopers Gap Wind Farm Community Consultative Committee group.

The testing aimed to show how different types of building materials attenuation sound from the outside environment. The testing was carried out in accordance with international standard ISO 16283-3:2016 Acoustics – Field measurement of sound insulation in buildings and building elements – Part 3: Façade sound insulation.
