AGL forced to complete Environmental Effects Statement (EES) for their proposed gas import terminal

AGL tried to submit their import terminal in Westernport bay and the associated gas pipeline to Packenham as separate projects to avoid undergoing an Environmental Effects Statement (EES) process.

We raised the alarm about AGL’s dodgy plan in the community and with government. This pressure led to planning Minister Richard Wynne requiring the projects be submitted together and undergo a full Environmental Effects Statement (EES) process. This is the most rigorous review process and ensured the project’s environmental impacts would be properly scrutinised and forced AGL to delay the project.
