AGL and APA have been consulting with key stakeholders, including local residents, environmental groups, community groups and government since July 2017.

There have been over 30 public community consultations, held at locations including Crib Point, Hastings, Balnarring, Blind Bight, Cowes, Cardinia, and Nar Nar Goon with both supporters and those who oppose the project.

Engagement and consultation activities and the feedback captured during preparation of the Environment Effects Statement is described in Chapter 26 of the EES Main Report in the EES section of this website.

We encourage the community to participate in the EES submission process during the public exhibition period from Thursday 2 July to 11.59pm on Wednesday 26 August 2020.

Staying safe

Australia is currently facing an unprecedented time under the widespread disruption caused by the novel COVID-19 pandemic. Our priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our team and the community.

As a result of the current pandemic, the Minister for Planning has issued amended procedures and requirements for the exhibition and inquiry phase of the Project. The amended procedures and requirements relate to the public exhibition and inquiry stages of the EES process.

Have your say

The EES process provides an opportunity to share your views on the Gas Import Jetty and Pipeline Project and have them considered by the Inquiry and Advisory Committee and relevant decision makers.

You have 40 business days to consider the EES documents and make a submission. Submissions close at 11.59pm on Wednesday 26 August 2020.

Written submissions (online or in hard copy) can be made via the Victorian Government’s Engage Victoria website. The submission process is independently managed by Planning Panels Victoria.
