IMPORTANT COMMUNITY MEETINGS

IMPORTANT COMMUNITY MEETINGS

Save our farms, towns and communities. AusNet’s towers will be a blight on the region for generations. The proposed overhead transmission line project will have a 100-year impact on our communities.

The transition to renewable energy doesn’t need to leave an army of transmission towers and a massive terminal station in its wake. Destroying the uniqueness of Western Victoria. There are better solutions that are not being considered.

  • Overhead powerlines are a proven bushfire risk
  • They will sterilise Victoria’s highest producing agricultural land
  • They will decimate endangered species’ habitat
  • The Impact on property values will be devastating
  • and Tourism and the environment will suffer

IF WE STAND TOGETHER, WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

STOP AUSNET’S TOWERS RALLY

The Moorabool and Central Highlands Power Alliance is taking our fight to Spring Street.

Join us on the steps of Parliament to send a message to the State Government: Stop AusNet’s Towers.

Too many politicians won’t come to us, so let’s go to them and tell them to save our communities and farms.

Details to follow over the coming weeks.

Letter Writing

Mail Out Monday – WEEK 5

Community Letter Writing Campaign

New Letter – Impact on Project Options

AusNet, the current proponent, is continuing to demonstrate it has no social licence and is not actively listening to the tens of thousands of Victorians that will be adversely affected by these transmission lines and the up to 80-metre-high towers along the 190km route.  I support the idea of connecting the whole state to renewable energy. However, the overhead transmission option that AusNet is progressing continues the use of dated technology which will bring extra risk and many adverse impacts for all communities dissected by the proposed route.

One way we can all take action!

Let’s make sure we all have our say.

It’s very important that the decision-makers hear from everyone about this appalling project.

Letter writing does make a difference.

Tens of thousands of people are very unhappy about the project and every individual voice of concern deserves to be heard.

Please just take a few minutes to access the community letter here Templates and Letters > STOP AUSNET’S TOWERS (stopausnetstowers.com.au) – insert your name and e-mail address and press send or download the letters and send from your own e-mail.

This only takes a few minutes of your time, but it is so important.  If you want to add further text, then you can certainly do that also.

The more letters we send expressing our concerns, the more we cannot be ignored and the more influence we can have!
