Advisory Review Urirama Windpark

Significant details

Some main conclusions of the NCEA's advisory report (which is in Dutch) are:

  • The EIA provides a good description of the proposed activity, apart from minor imperfections in the descrioption of noise effects;
  • It is advisable to investigate possibilities to make adaptations in the project if stakeholders experience negative effects when the windpark is already in use;
  • The EIA does not describe alternative locations; reasons for this are provided in the EIA but more information on the local situation would be required to judge their validity.
