Review of the National Wind Farm Commissioner

The Minister for the Environment and Energy, the Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, has asked the Climate Change Authority to conduct a review of the role of the National Wind Farm Commissioner.

At the time the National Wind Farm Commissioner was established, the Government said it would review the role in 2018. This review responds to that undertaking. 

The Authority is asked to consider to what extent the Commissioner is fulfilling its Terms of Reference, the ongoing need for the role, its scope and possible models for funding.

The Authority is keen to understand from stakeholders how the Commissioner is performing against his Terms of Reference in particular, in dealing with complaints about proposed and operational wind farms.

Submissions are invited until 13 April 2018.
