Solar Farm Community Consultation @ Pioneer Park, Forrestfield

03 March 2021 5:00 PM

The City wants your views on a proposed Solar Farm at Pioneer Park located in Forrestfield

In June 2019, the City conducted a survey to gather the community’s opinions on and attitudes towards environmental sustainability with a key focus on understanding the community’s attitudes towards developing a Solar Farm within the City. With 70% of the community in favour of further investigation, the City conducted a pre-feasibility study to identify possible locations. The pre-feasibility report identified the most viable location for a solar farm on land owned or controlled by the City (avoiding land procurement costs) was Pioneer Park in Forrestfield.

Future use of Pioneer Park is restricted due to it’s history as a former landfill site.

We’d like to know what you think about developing a Solar Farm at Pioneer Park. We appreciate your time in completing the below survey and in contributing to this important community discussion.
