KKEPS Seaham Battery proposal Aug 2023

When KKEPS members approached this proposal, it was confused with the large RES Battery sensibly proposed on mostly cleared land on Clarence Town Road near Wighton Street, adjacent to the substation at Seaham. The developers of that BESS have been discussing their plans with local residents and in particular our colleagues from VOWW.

This current application, however, is on a private rural property within a known habited koala corridor. This proposed site is RU2 zoned land on the eastern edge of the Hunter-Central Coast Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) and almost opposite the entrance to the Brandy Hill Quarry.
