Role of these Community Reference Groups (CRG)

These groups are the primary mechanism for the community and stakeholders to express concerns directly to each gas plants about issues related to the development and to also have an opportunity to understand operational matters by being informed on these activities.

The CRG has an advisory capacity and statutory authority ultimately remains with Corangamite Shire Council and other regulatory authorities with responsibility for project approvals, consents and licenses.

Members of the CRG have no role in relation to the assessment, mediation or resolution of disputes, grievances or claims for compensation which individual community members may have with the gas plants.
