On 21 December 2018, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to RCR O’Donnell Griffin Pty Ltd for undertaking cut and fill activities in excess of areas stated in the approved Construction Environmental Management Plan for the Manildra Solar Farm. This resulted in nearly three times the approved area being disturbed (33.5ha compared to the approved 13.11ha), with the potential for air quality and sediment control issues. Construction of the development is now complete. Follow up inspections of the site have been undertaken and adequate ground cover establishment has been observed.
