Save Westernport’s Submission against AGL’s Environment Effects Statement has been lodged with Planning Panels Victoria, who will now oversee the Public Hearings for the EES.
Our submission can now be viewed here
Many Thanks to everyone who collaborated to produce this wonderful work, and to Chris and Jane from Save Westernport for bringing together the many contributions.
Thanks also to Victor and all Save Westernport’s campaign partners at Environment Victoria- EV, Westernport Peninsula Protection Council- WPPC, Phillip Island Conservation Council- PICS, and Victorian National Parks Association- VNPA, and to all our wonderful friends.
I am so encouraged by what we were able to achieve in just 40 days, under extremely difficult lockdown conditions.
The next stage of the EES will be the Panel Hearings beginning on October 12.
You can DONATE to support us at the EES Hearings against AGL
Those of you who indicated in their submissions that they’d like to address the Panel directly will have the opportunity to do this via video link at the Hearings.
Planning for the Panel Hearings will begin on October 12.
Remember, these Hearings will require us to go up against Energy giant AGL—to take on the limitless resources of a corporation with past convictions for “deceptive and misleading conduct”
But we still have to reach our fundraising target.
Funds are urgently needed to secure the best legal support and expert witnesses to ensure the interests of our community are represented at the Hearings.
This will be essential to challenge AGL’s exploitative plans.
To contribute to this monumental effort, please consider…‘What Does Westernport Mean to Me..?.’
and PLEASE Donate Here.
By pooling our resources, however large or small, we can make sure those without a voice are heard.
And let’s do this!!
Secretary Save Westernport
