If your property is located in the draft corridor, it means that your property may be impacted by the VNI West project. We would like to speak with you to improve our understanding about your land and your business, as important input into the work underway to refine the route for transmission.

TCV is aiming to narrow the draft corridor to a preferred easement approximately 100m wide in the third quarter of 2024. Detail regarding the location of the preferred easement will be communicated at that time.

TCV has allocated a dedicated Landholder Liaison to each landholder within the draft corridor. The landholder liaisons are attempting to contact each landholder to better understand their land and farm operations and answer any questions they may have. Contact details are sourced through publicly available records wherever possible. Landholders were contacted via phone in the first instance where a number was publicly available. If we were unable to find a phone number, we sent letters to the landholder’s registered postal address or left information packages on the property. In the instance these contact methods were unsuccessful, TCV attempted to visit the property to speak with the landholder.

If you are a landholder in the corridor and you have yet to make contact with your Landholder Liaison, please reach out through 1800 824 221 or via email at enquiries@transmissionvictoria.com.au

Field surveys are important to help identify the most appropriate easement for this project. We are currently seeking access to both public and private properties to conduct onsite surveys across the draft corridor, to build our understanding of the land, environmental sensitivities and potential impacts of the project.

Our land team is seeking to negotiate voluntary access agreements with landholders before any field surveys commence. Once agreed, a formal Land Access Agreement (LAA) covers the landholder’s terms of access, including any biosecurity requirements, notice periods and access points. More details can be found in the Landholder Guide.

A broad range of expert assessments and detailed field studies will also be required as part of the regulated Environment Effects Statement process, which will take place over the next two years.
