Working with local communities

Community and stakeholder feedback is essential to planning, developing and delivering a world-class offshore wind project in Gippsland.

As we continue investigating the project, we're working with local communities to understand interests, concerns and opportunities - and to work together to create benefits for Gippsland.

Earlier this year we invited community feedback on:

  • Options for the project's transmission corridor
  • Fishing and offshore wind
  • Our ongoing site investigations
  • How we're consulting and communicating.

An online survey and interactive map, and hardcopy versions sent via post, were used to collect feedback from 9 April to 17 May. Thanks to everyone who shared local knowledge and ideas.

Community Advisory Group

Our Community Advisory Group brings the project team together with people from across Gippsland to share information, answer questions and seek local advice.

The group held its first meeting in October 2020 and will meet every 6-8 weeks.

The first meeting in October 2020.

Agendas, minutes and the group's terms of reference will be shared on this webpage after being endorsed by the group.

The Community Advisory Group is just one way for locals to get involved with the project. We are always available to talk directly with organisations and individuals.

Landholder conversations

Earlier this year we met with all landowners whose land may be suitable for possible transmission routes. At this stage, we do not expect other properties to be directly affected. Should anything change and we find that other routes need to be considered, we would contact relevant landholders directly to discuss.

Please get in touch with us on 1800 340 340 or email info@starofthesouth.com.au if you're a landholder with any questions or concerns
