The WinterbourneWind Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) has now been endorsed! Uralla Shire Council endorsed the VPA at its meeting on 8 May 2024 and Walcha Council endorsed the VPA at its meeting on 26 June 2024.

Under the VPA, WinterbourneWind will provide money annually to a Community Benefit Fund (CBF), and each Council will manage allocation of the funds to community projects, services and infrastructure. Community advisory committees will be established to make recommendations to Council about the kinds of projects and services the community wants to invest in.

The funds will be split 90% to the Walcha community and 10% to the Uralla Shire community, which matches the relative geographic and infrastructure split of the proposed project within each Local Government Area.

We look forward to providing funding for local infrastructure, facilities and services that will support the existing and future population and will contribute to greater amenity for the Walcha and Uralla communities.
