Our engagement model for route selection was developed following a significant consultation process to allow for greater stakeholder involvement earlier in the project planning development process.

Speaking with stakeholders during the development of the revised model highlighted the importance of identifying fit-for-purpose consultation activities and requirements for each project during initial engagement stages on a project-by-project basis. For each project, engagement activities will be determined by the scale, potential impact and level of feedback and interest from the local community.

The revised engagement model for route selection involves a series of consultation activities in addition to Powerlink’s legislated consultation requirements.
