Landholder engagement team

New transmission infrastructure is crucial to Victoria’s energy future, but we recognise that it also has impacts for host communities and landholders.

We have established a local and dedicated landholder engagement team and are seeking to talk directly with landholders in the study area to better understand their needs, their properties and activities like agricultural practices, with the aim of improving the project and minimising impacts as much as possible. We can also talk about the study area, explain our decision-making process, and answer any questions you may have.

To contact the project team directly or schedule a time to meet with members of the team, please get in touch via email at or phone: 1800 959 431.

We are hosting community drop-in sessions around Gippsland where you can meet with the project team and raise any questions or concerns you may have.

See event details on our Engage Victoria page.

Community support services

VicGrid acknowledges the uncertainty and concern around new offshore wind transmission infrastructure in Gippsland, particularly for affected landholders and communities.

We encourage anyone struggling with challenges to their own, a friend or a family member’s mental health and wellbeing to contact one of the independent support providers listed below for free and confidential advice.

We are talking to local organisations in Gippsland about putting in place local support services and will provide updates on this work.
