✓ operations and maintenance buildings with associated car parking
✓ road upgrade works on the site access route
✓ above ground and underground cabling
✓ internal all-weather access tracks
✓ security system and security fencing
✓ native vegetation plantings to provide visual screening
✓ meteorological station(s); and
