Far North NSW Project

Client: URS / Transgrid

Linchpin Environmental seconded Michael Chilcott to URS to direct the preparation of approvals documentation for a 205 km 330kv transmission line project designated a State Significant Infrastructure project by Planning NSW. This work included securing State and Commonwealth environmental approvals, including the assessment of complex assessment of Matters of National Environmental Significance (MNES). The project had a high community and regulatory stakeholder profile. 


This complex and challenging linear infrastructure project required a close working relationship with a public sector client (TransGrid). The project assessment documentation was completed and received client sign-off. Following this, Transgrid deferred implementation of the project owing to a re-assessment of market demand.
