Transmission corridor announced

Following consideration of community consultation and feedback, along with early investigations, we narrowed down the area of interest to multiple corridors in February 2021. Extensive community consultation and technical investigations have continued since then. The least constrained corridor has now been identified based on:

  • Consultation with landholders and local communities.
  • Technical assessment by environmental specialists.
  • Cost to electricity consumers – infrastructure cost is paid for by the consumers.

The project is preparing technical information for the Environment Effects Statement (EES) process.

We will be in contact with all landholders who own property within the least constrained corridor over the coming month. We respect your privacy and land ownership and are committed to working with you to minimise disturbance to your property and interruptions to your business activities.

Please register to keep in touch with the project and for future opportunities to participate in the EES engagement process.

Minutes of Community Consultation Groups (CCGs) meetings

The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project Community Consultation Groups (CCG) have been established and met for the first time in April 2021.
The third meeting was held on 8 June 2021. You can find the minutes of this meeting here. Minutes of all CCG meetings will continue to be published on this website.

Nominations for the Community Consultation Groups have now closed - if you are still interested in being involved please email us info@westvictnp.com.au.

    In February and March 2021, AusNet Services sought nominations for members for three Western Victoria Transmission Network Project Community Consultation Groups.

    The Community Consultation Groups (CCGs) are based in the east, central and west of the project, with the aim of enhancing communication both within the community and between the community and the project. 

    The Community Consultation Groups will: 

    • Provide a transparent, representative and accessible forum to assist with identification and discussion of issues of community interest related to the project. 

    • Provide a forum for information about the project to be shared with community representatives and invite feedback and suggestions on a range of project matters.

    • Receive briefings on specific local issues, impacts and benefits associated with the project and provide feedback to the project team. 

    • Increase understanding about the project within the community, capture community feedback and suggestions and help identify and shape future community engagement opportunities. 

    • Provide advice on potential benefit sharing projects recommended by the community 

    Nominees were required to: 

    • Have a clear interest in or connection to the project. 

    • Bring a broad range of backgrounds and interests in the community, such as in local government, agriculture, environment, business, cultural heritage, transport and emergency services. 

    • Be able to represent different elements of the community, such as gender, abilities, age, ethnicity and cultural background.

    Members were selected so that the groups are geographically representative, comprise a diverse range of perspectives, demographics and backgrounds, and have strong community connections.
