Huntly Common will prepare a communication and consultation plan for the EES, outlining the opportunities and approaches for its community engagement during the preparation of the EES. The plan will be refined following advice from DELWP and the Technical Reference Group and will be published on this web page.
The consultation plan may be adapted or modified to meet changing community needs and requirements throughout the EES process.
Technical reference group
DELWP has established an inter-agency technical reference group at the request of the Minister for Planning to advise DELWP and the proponent on scoping and adequacy of the EES studies and documentation, as well as co-ordination of the EES process with other statutory processes for the project.
The participating organisations are:
- DELWP Impact Assessment
- DELWP Loddon Mallee Region
- Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation (Djaara)
- Department of Jobs, Precincts and Resources, Earth Resources Regulation
- City of Greater Bendigo
- Environment Protection Authority
- First Peoples State Relations
- Heritage Victoria
- North Central Catchment Management Authority
- Parks Victoria
- Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment
The scoping requirements set out the matters to be investigated and documented in the Environmental Effects Statement (EES). Draft scoping requirements are yet to be prepared. Once prepared the draft will be publicly advertised for a period of 15 business days.
After considering public submissions on the draft scoping requirements, the Minister for Planning will issue final scoping requirements.
Minister's decision on referral
On 18 March 2021 the Minister for Planning required Huntly Common to prepare an Environment Effects Statement (EES) under the Environment Effects Act 1978 to assess the potential environmental effects of the project.
