The Mortlake South Wind Farm is proposed for a site 5 kilometres south of Mortlake in the Moyne Shire of south western Victoria.
The wind farm will be constructed on cleared, open and level predominantly dairy farming country. The location is highly exposed to consistent winds across this part of the state.
Planning approval was granted by the State Government in 2010. The A$200m project will generate significant economic activity in the Moyne Shire and surrounds- including over 80-100 construction jobs and 5-10 full time operational positions.
ACCIONA has established an information hub within Mortlake's Information Centre. The Information Centre is located at 103 Dunlop Street Mortlake and is open Monday-Friday, 9am to 4pm.. Here you will have an opportunity to speak directly with one of ACCIONA's staff as well as view material relating to the project. The hours a staff member will be present are posted at the Information Centre, so please come and have a chat, we would love to see you. If you prefer to register a set time please call our freecall community information hotline 1800 283 550, or contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This design has been informed by input from our recent community engagement work. We thank you for your input.
DELWP will now undertake a review of the application documentation, and advise on the need or otherwise for ACCIONA to submit additional information to assist their assessment. Once DELWP are satisfied with the application, they will place the application on formal public notification. We encourage you to submit your comments to the DELWP at that time - your voice is important.
Ahead of this formal public notification period, ACCIONA are pleased to provide all our supporting material for this application to the general public.
