Environment Effects Statement (EES) process provides rigorous assessment and consultation opportunities

Local communities will have the opportunity to provide feedback on VNI West as the project goes through a comprehensive Environment Effects Statement (EES) process over the next two years.

The EES is a rigorous process to assess the potential impacts of major projects in Victoria, overseen by the Department of Transport and Planning (DTP).

As part of the EES process, TCV will carry out extensive technical and environmental studies along with landholder, community and Traditional Owner consultation to assess the potential impacts of the project and identify mitigation measures.

EES studies

The full range of matters to be investigated will be developed by DTP in a document known as the “draft scoping requirements”. DTP will release the draft scoping requirements for public comment, providing the community with the opportunity to provide feedback before the scoping requirements are finalised and issued by the Minister for Planning.

Further information regarding the VNI West EES process can be found in our fact sheet on the TCV website and on the DTP website at www.planning.vic.gov.au
