We understand the community is concerned about the visual impacts of the project. Throughout the Environment Effects Statement (EES) process the design will be revised to respond to environmental assessments and feedback from the community and other stakeholders. The avoid, minimise and mitigate hierarchy will be followed, however it should be noted that major projects, particularly a major project of the scale of the Western Victoria Transmission Network Project, cannot entirely avoid adverse impacts. At the conclusion of the EES process the Minister for Planning will consider the overall significance of potential effects relative to the likely benefits of the project.
