Daniel Andrews, Premier of Victoria
Richard Wynne, Minister for Planning
Lily D’Ambrosio, Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change

Summary: AusNet have finally put a price on our lives and livelihoods. The proposed compensation package for those impacted by the Western Victoria Transmission Network Project is an insult. The compensation plan does nothing to address the many thousands who sit adjacent the proposed transmission corridor who stand to lose significant amenity and will face heightened risk. No amount of money will protect us from the threat of bushfire, save our farms from devastation or stop the loss of precious landscapes. You need to intervene and direct AusNet to send the WVTNP back to the drawing board…

Summary: I am writing to you about the Western Victorian Transmission Network Project (WVTNP) being undertaken by AusNet and my concerns of their disingenuous community consultation. I strongly oppose AEMO’s contract for AusNet to install towers and the Terminal Station through Western Victoria. My views and concerns are shared by my immediate and extended family, neighbours and landowners. Overhead towers are environmentally and socially unacceptable. Our stance is based on evidence, such as recent tower failures at Cressy, outcomes of the 2009 Bushfires Royal Commission, local advice from the CFA, and coalesced feedback from affected parties…
