Working with the community

Community feedback

EnergyCo is working closely with the community as we plan and deliver the New England Renewable Energy Zone (REZ).

EnergyCo has been consulting with communities and landowners on a study corridor for the New England REZ transmission project since June 2023. 

This feedback, along with information gathered from field investigations has resulted in a range of changes to the preliminary study corridor. These changes can be viewed on the interactive map.

EnergyCo has now finalised a revised study corridor for the transmission project that minimises overall impacts on local landowners and the environment and increases the use of state-owned land. 

Community information sessions

In response to feedback, EnergyCo held a community information session for landowners and community members in the Woolomin and Duncans Creek area on Tuesday 14 May 2024.

The session at Woolomin Hall included a formal presentation to address feedback received and dedicated time to address questions.

In response to questions raised during this session, a list of frequently asked questions and responses has been developed. A copy of the presentation provided is also available here.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the session and for the feedback provided. Your input is valuable in this early planning stage of the project and will help us better understand constraints and opportunities in the area and further refine the corridor.
