SMWV proposal has less impact

The SMWV proposal for Firewood Road site has less impact then the WC proposal for the Firewood Rd site.

  • At the time of community consultation the Firewood Rd site was 39.5ha.  The concept plan presented required the clearing of 13 ha and the construction of pipelines up Firewood Rd.  Because of this, the assessments of WC’s selection criteria favoured the DEC land site.
  • The SMWV proposal also requires 13 ha but is located on poorer vegetation, requires no additional pipeline and includes the electricity substation and 2-4 ha of native vegetation.
