The Golden Plains Wind Farm Community Reference Group will oversee the community benefit funding process and vote on applications.
The Golden Plains Wind Farm Community Reference Group (CRG) is a group of 8 community members. The CRG is an advisory body for the Golden Plains Wind Farm in the allocation of the Community Benefit Fund and help to ensure the community benefits from the development.
WestWind Energy advertised for CRG nominations in late 2018 and early 2019. A selection committee, comprised of representatives from Golden Plains Shire and WestWind Energy, along with an independent engagement specialist, reviewed applications. Selection criteria was based on achieving a representative group from a range of community groups, geographic locations, gender and age. The group has a 2 year term, when nominations will be re-advertised.
