Communities encouraged to respond to EIS for critical transmission project HumeLink

30 August 2023

Landowners, community members and other stakeholders are encouraged to respond to the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) published today for the HumeLink project.

Project Director Jeremy Roberts said “The EIS is a major step in the planning process for this critical transmission project and it gives people more opportunity to respond on significant issues such as biodiversity, bushfire risk and visual amenity.” 

“I encourage all stakeholders to provide their submissions to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment,” said Mr Roberts. 

The EIS includes 19 specialist studies and assessments across areas such as the environment, biodiversity, bushfire risk and visual amenity. It also includes strategies to mitigate potential impacts from the project during construction and operation. ​ 

The HumeLink project team will continue to communicate with landowners, communities and stakeholders. Future engagement will include face-to-face EIS information sessions (from Monday, September 4) which will outline the process for making a submission to DPE.​ 

The HumeLink EIS will remain on public exhibition until Wednesday 27 September, 2023:  HumeLink | Planning Portal - Department of Planning and Environment (nsw.gov.au)
