An important focus in the next phase of the project is the conversations with landholders, local communities and Traditional Owners in the draft corridor.

TCV will work directly with landholders to find the best practicable location for the transmission alignment to minimise impacts to farming operations and agriculture.

TCV is currently talking with farmers and other property owners within the draft corridor to build our understanding of the land and land use.

Every landholder in the draft corridor has a dedicated Landholder Liaison, a key contact to help answer questions on important issues, including farming with transmission lines, biosecurity arrangements, access agreements, compensation for an easement and other payments.

We greatly encourage impacted landholders who have not yet been able to have a discussion with their Landholder Liaison to reach out. A conversation with your dedicated Landholder Liaison will not increase the likelihood of the project going ahead or being located on your land.

It is an opportunity to share details of how farms and properties operate and how your land is being used to reduce the impact of the final location of the line.

You can contact us at 1800 824 221 or email enquiries@transmissionvictoria.com.au to be put in touch with your Landholder Liaison.
