Environment Effects Statement

An Environment Effects Statement (EES) was publicly released for the North East Link Project on 10 April 2019. Public submissions closed on 7 June 2019.

The EES includes information on how the project could affect the environment during construction and when the project opens and how any adverse impacts would be managed.

From here, an Inquiry and Advisory Committee will review the EES, draft Planning Scheme Amendment, Works Approval application and public submissions in accordance with Terms of Reference approved by the Minister for Planning.

A Directions Hearing was held Friday 21 June 2019 at The Veneto Club, 191 Bulleen Road, Bulleen.

The Public Hearing commenced Thursday 25 July 2019 and continues until Friday 13 September at The Veneto Club, 191 Bulleen Road, Bulleen.
