Following Public feedback, the Mid-Western Regional Council will now extend the deadline for submissions on the proposed Solar farm developments at Burrendulla & Gulgong.

Mid Western Regional Council General Manager Brad Cam has told 2MG News that submissions will now be accepted up until Fridya July 19th.

He also says that while the submissions need to the made to Council, the final say on the projects lie with a regional planning panel under State Government rules.  That panel is made up of 2 Councillors and 3 independent representatives.

He also says that the two applications will be assessed separate to each other, and that and public submissions should be individual, not in the form of a group of signatures.

More than 270 have already been received by council for the Gulgong DA and 90 for the proposal at Burrendulla.
