Community Drop-in Sessions March 2021

Community Drop-in Sessions March 2021


AUSNET have narrowed down a broad Area of Interest to a number of corridor options for further investigation and consultation. AUSNET are encouraging feedback on these options as they work towards identifying a single corridor and a final route. These planning studies and community consultation are an important part of the Environment Effects Statement required by the Victorian Government for this project – your input is important, and they want to hear from the community.

Meet the AUSNET team, learn about the project, and share your feedback with them. Drop in anytime between 2.00pm – 7.00pm at a location listed below

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.
