Where is the North East Link advisory group report?

Nov 28, 2019 | News, North East Link

Eastern Metro MP Rod Barton has asked the Planning Minister for a timeline on the release of the independent advisory group (IAG) report on the North East Link project.

Public hearings on the project’s Environmental Effects Statement concluded on 16 September, with the IAG required to present its report on more than 850 submissions and six weeks of hearings to the Minister within 30 days, but the report has yet to be made public.

“People within my local constituency have been asking for an update. They simply want to know what is going on. Christmas is upon us and they are seeking reassurance that the committee has heard them, that the minister will listen to their needs,” said Mr Barton.

Where is the North East Link EES report?

This week I asked the Planning Minister for a timeline on the release of the independent advisory group (IAG) report on the North East Link project.

Mr Barton said many businesses would be severely impacted by the construction of the North East Link and some will lose their sole source of income.

“The community needs ample time to prepare themselves, their families and their communities for the change that this project will bring.

“To do this, they simply need to know, to a degree of certainty, the likely and potential outcome,” he said.
