Working with the Community
To make sure we deliver the best solution, AusNet is committed to working with landowners, the community and stakeholders as we develop this important project to connect these green energy projects to the grid.
AusNet will provide multiple opportunities and channels for the community to provide feedback on the project and will undertake investigations and assessments to better understand the project’s impact.
Delivering benefits to the community
AusNet will work closely with the Gippsland community to ensure the benefits of the project are shared at both a local and broader level.
Our Community Benefits Sharing Program will help fund and deliver initiatives that the Gippsland community identifies as being important for the region's long-term growth, sustainability and wellbeing.
We've also established a Community Advisory Group to help in identifying the initiatives that should be supported through our Community Benefits Sharing Program and to advise the project more broadly.
