The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project is proposing hundreds of high voltage towers across our landscape and a massive terminal station which will irreversibly impact our livelihoods and landscape. The Stop AusNet’s Towers campaign urgently needs your help to get a better solution.
We know that this project will devastate communities, destroy the environment, permanently effect our productive farms, decrease our property values and heighten the risk from devastating bushfires.
Stop AusNet’s Towers is a self-funded, grass roots community campaign. AusNet is a foreign-owned, multi-billion-dollar corporate business.
Your donation will allow us to mount a credible, convincing and vigorous campaign that will seek the project be delivered in a way that is acceptable to the community.
Our strategy involves independent technical analysis of alternatives and legal representation at different stages to ensure the community’s best interests are considered and the AEMO and Victorian Ministers for Energy and Planning are persuaded to change the project to connect the West’s renewable energy in a socially acceptable way.
We need to stand together to effect change and require significant funds to support a well targeted, professional campaign.
Challenging AusNet’s Environmental Effects Study (EES) findings by engaging key legal and leading experts to prosecute our conclusions to make sure our community’s voice is heard. This will be inclusive of key expert areas (i.e. underground, visual impact, economic, agriculture, bushfire, etc.). A successful outcome will ensure the project does not continue in its current form.
Continued use of strategic campaign services to help lobby the government and AEMO and engage with the media and key stakeholders, and provide campaign support including marketing, advertising, website, collateral, signage, and media coverage. A successful campaign will allow us to stand together to engage with key decision makers in a meaningful way to influence a positive outcome for our community.
