Goulburn Mulwaree Council is seeking additional costs in connection with the Land and Environment Court action relating to the establishment of a cemetery by the Al Marbaarat Benevolent Society, near Marulan.


Closing submissions in the case were heard on the 23rd of June this year.


The Al Marbaarat Society is seeking to develop an eleven thousand plot cemetery.


Goulburn Mulwaree General manager, Warrick Bennett says council is approaching the court to lay a claim for additional costs incurred because the society's application has changed so much in the past three years.

This week's meeting of Goulburn Mulwaree Council received a comprehensive briefing on the status of the Jupiter Wind Farm, south of Goulburn.


It is expected it will be at least a year before the project goes ahead with the proponents first having discussions with Goulburn Mulwaree about upgrading roads.


However, the wind farm is currently being assessed by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment.


The presentation to council noted that the original 88 wind turbine generators have been reduced to 54.


When the facility is fully operational, it will generate up to 240 megawatts of electricity, enough to power more than 103,000 homes.


The project will consume a direct investment of $71 million during construction and then a further $4.8 million a year during operation.
