Title
Review of proposed Western Victoria Transmission Network
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the Victorians who will be negatively impacted by the proposed Western Victoria Transmission Network. Our highly productive and rich volcanic soil, invaluable irrigation farmland, unique historic landscapes and natural mineral springs must be protected and preserved.

We object to the current proposed corridor and terminal station site. Using appropriate underground technology along alternative routes such as existing roads or easements would be a more logical decision. It would have a far more positive impact on future generations and ensure our vital food security is neither compromised nor threatened.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to work with the Australian Energy Market Operator and review the proposed Western Victoria Transmission Network and seriously look at all alternate options and technologies for a better outcome for all Victorians.
