Hepburn Shire Council has welcomed the announcement by AusNet that it intends to invest more time in carrying out consultation with landholders and the community on the proposed route for overhead transmission lines and terminal station proposed as part of the Western Victoria Transmission Network Project.

In a statement last week, AusNet advised the expected release date of its Environmental Effects Statement would be pushed out from mid-2022 to late-2022. The council is strongly opposed to the proposed route and 24ha terminal station in the shire, which is planned to be located on some of the highest value agriculture land in the country.
