Why your views are important
Gaining support from the King Island community and stakeholders is crucial for TasWind’s development.
Hydro Tasmania aims to lead a new era of renewable energy project planning and delivery across Australia by:
- genuinely consulting with the local community to understand people’s issues, concerns and views
- considering those views when making decisions about TasWind
- empowering the community to be involved in the decision-making process.
- engaging with the community to ensure opportunities for positive outcomes are maximised.
Hydro Tasmania will not proceed with the project if it does not have the support of the community.
Understanding whether the King Island community accepts TasWind involves providing clear, transparent and easy-to-understand information about the project’s benefits and impacts in a variety of formats and locations. It involves listening to your views and concerns and considering your feedback.
At the same time, Hydro Tasmania will be consulting with stakeholders off the Island who have an interest in the project, such as non-government organisations, regulatory bodies, political groups and our shareholders.
