INVITATION FOR PUBLIC COMMENT

Victorian Big Battery Storage Facility, 680 Ballan Road Moorabool, Victoria (EPBC 2020/8614).

The following notice is published pursuant to Section 95A(3) of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).

Neoen Australia Pty Ltd proposes to develop Victoria’s Big Battery project at 680 Ballan Road, Moorabool, Victoria. The project will be established around the existing Moorabool Terminal Station managed by AusNet Pty Ltd. Construction is expected to commence in September 2020.

The proposed action is a controlled action under the EPBC Act. The controlling provisions are listed threatened species and communities (Sections 18 and 18A) and the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) advised that the project will be assessed through preliminary documentation. The proposed action could result in a significant impact on the Natural Temperate Grassland of the Victorian Volcanic Plain ecological community and Striped Legless Lizard Delma impar.

The preliminary documentation is now available for viewing for a period of 15 business days from Friday 11 September to Friday 9 October inclusive. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions the documents can only be viewed or downloaded at biosis.com.au (see links below).
