Community group to brief Geelong on floating gas terminal

Will outline EES requirements for Viva's proposal

Geelong Sustainability will host a community briefing next week on Viva Energy’s proposal to build a gas import terminal at its pier in Corio Bay.

The briefing will cover what this proposal means for Geelong and Victoria’s energy, business, economic, recreation, environment and climate future.

Given the implications of the proposal, a key aspect of the briefing will be an outline of the Environmental Effects Statement process, how it runs and opportunities to participate in this.

Event organiser Sally Fisher said “we will be outlining ways that people can help to build community support towards a sustainable energy future for Geelong. People must be well informed about the EES process and the potential impacts of the Viva proposal.”

Details of the briefing:

Date: Wed Feb 24, 6.15 for 6.30pm start. Finish 8.30pm

Where: Geelong West Town Hall, 153 Pakington St, Geelong West

Cost: $3 includes light snacks. Drinks will be available for purchase, cash only.
