Community Consultation Group (CCG) Nominations

Community Consultation Group

AusNet Services is seeking nominations for members for three Western Victoria Transmission Network Project Community Consultation Groups.

The Community Consultation Groups (CCGs) will be 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

Those to be considered will: 

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

Get Involved

The only way to make a difference is to get involved. It’s easy to sit back and wait for others to do something but when you are staring at 75-85m towers in a few years time, you will kicking yourself for not doing something when you had the chance.  This is OUR only chance to stop these towers, so get involved now.

Welcome to the home of Darley Power Fight. A group of residents in Darley, Coimadai and Merrimu, united against high voltage transmission towers passing through our backyard. We came together through the realisation the transmission line will divide a narrow corridor between Darley and the Lerderderg State Park; altering landscape character, causing widespread damage to critical habitat for threatened species, increasing fire risk to the Park and thousands of residents, destroy our visual amenity, harm local agriculture and will impact businesses and property values. It will completely desecrate, in a few years, what nature has taken millions of years to create.
