Environment Effects Statement public hearings
11 May 2018
We’re one step closer to removing the dangerous level crossings at Edithvale and Bonbeach.
Public comment on the Environment Effects Statement (EES) for the Edithvale and Bonbeach level crossing projects closed on 2 May 2018 after six weeks on exhibition.
During this time, 248 public submissions on the EES and proposed design were received, and will help to shape the outcomes of the project.
An independent Inquiry panel, appointed to advise the Minister for Planning, will consider the EES, draft Planning Scheme Amendments (PSA) and all submissions received.
The Inquiry will hear from expert witnesses and those who elected to present their submissions at the hearings, which will run throughout June. The public is invited to attend the hearings.
Public hearings – EES
When: Monday 4 June to Thursday 7 June 2018 and Wednesday 13 June to Friday 15 June 2018
The public is invited to attend public hearings, where an independent Inquiry will consider the EES, draft Planning Scheme Amendment and all public submissions.
The hearing timetable and audio recordings will be made available on Engage Victoria’s website.
After the public hearings, the Inquiry will make its recommendations to the Minister, who will make an assessment on the EES and a decision on the PSA in mid to late 2018. The Australian Government’s Minister for the Environment and Energy will also make an assessment on the EES. These two assessments conclude the EES process.
