STOP GUNDARY
SOLAR FARM

If this project is approved it will set a dangerous and irreversible precedent for inappropriate development of agricultural land and have devastating effects on the environment, local economy and aesthetics of the Goulburn Mulwaree Region. 

Why it matters

Most of the Gundary Plains from Currawang Road in the west to Mount Gundary in the east, Boxers Creek to the North and
Readers Road in the South, will be susceptible to solar farm developments.

Wherever there are High Voltage power lines you are likely to see more Solar Facilities.

If this project is approved it will set a dangerous and irreversible precedent for further inappropriate developments which will change the very agricultural nature of Gundary Plains and similar areas in the Goulburn Mulwaree area.

What is the Gundary Solar Farm proposal ?

1500
Acres of this

SCALE

A large industrial site of

1,500 acres to

be covered by around 670,000

large solar panels

LAND

The site is prime agricultural

land (Class 3) and is classed

as RU1 under the local LEP

(Local Environment Plan)

AESTHETICS

Significant visual impact that

degrades and

devalues the rural landscape

FIRE RISK

A serious fire risk for

neighbours, particularly on the

eastern and southern side from

solar panel and battery fires

and a hampered ability to fight

any fire

that burns onto the facility.

FIRE HAZARD

The people living at the end of Kooringaroo Rd (a NO Through Road) are at significant risk from fires being pushed by north westerly and westerly winds as they will be unlikely to be able to escape.

FIRE HAZARD

The people living at the end of Kooringaroo Rd (a NO Through Road) are at significant risk from fires being pushed by north westerly and westerly winds as they will be unlikely to be able to escape.

RADIATION

As a large electricity facility

the amount of exposure to

electromagnetic radiation

is unknown

NOISE

Construction noise levels over

100dB and operation noise over

95dB every 15 minutes

REAL ESTATE

Neighbours and near

neighbours’ properties will

be devalued.

LOCAL IMPACT

The power will be sent to

Canberra or Sydney,

not Goulburn

(as advised by Lightsource bp) 

The Solar Electricity Facility

has an expected life of 35 years,

whereas agriculture/farming

has occurred on the Gundary

Plain for over 200 years and

should remain as prime

agricultural land.

OUR FUTURE

If approved this facility will set

a dangerous and irreversible

precedent for further

inappropriate

developments on the

Gundary Plains and around

Goulburn

SUSTAINABILITY

It might affect your property!

If you can see the WHITE TANK on the eastern side of Windellama Rd (from 1630 to 961) you will see a large portion of the solar facility.  If you can see the high voltage power lines you may see a large portion of the solar facility. If you live in the vicinity of the “Old Gundary” entrance at 961 Windedellama Road, you will see the large sub-station.
Even if you can't see it - this will affect the value of property throughout the region.

Solar Panel Farm8

It covers 638ha (1576 acres)

The magnitude –
the scale is that of
an industrial facility

GUNDARY
SOLAR FARM

The size of this proposal
is 2.7 km wide!

The maximum output
of 400MW will be created by some 670,000 large 600W solar panels which we have been told will be made in China.

Wild Fire
