Thank you for sharing your views on the future of Alcoa's Anglesea site.

Alcoa’s Anglesea Power Station and Mine was permanently closed in August 2015.

Between March 2016 and March 2018 Alcoa undertook a four-phase community consultation process to better understand community and key stakeholder views about the future use of the site which consists of leased Crown land and Alcoa freehold land.

At each key phase of the consultation, Alcoa communicated broadly with the Anglesea community and key stakeholders and sought feedback via a range of public activities, resulting in more than 6,000 face-to-face and online interactions, and more than 2,000 comments and submissions. Alcoa extends its sincere thanks to everyone who participated.

Community engagement reports from each of these phases, along with further information about the future of Alcoa’s Anglesea site, are available in the Document Library and the News Feed below.

Key outputs of Alcoa’s community consultation include the Draft Mine Rehabilitation and Mine Plan submitted to the Victorian Government in September 2017 and the Alcoa Freehold Concept Master Plan submitted to the Victorian Government in March 2018.

    Alcoa has released a draft Concept Master Plan for its freehold land in Anglesea and is seeking community feedback.

    Following comprehensive consultation regarding its draft Mine Rehabilitation and Closure Plan last year, Alcoa of Australia is now inviting the community to provide feedback on a draft Concept Master Plan for its freehold landholdings in Anglesea.

    Alcoa has released a draft Concept Master Plan for its freehold land in Anglesea and is seeking community feedback.

    Following comprehensive consultation regarding its draft Mine Rehabilitation and Closure Plan last year, Alcoa of Australia is now inviting the community to provide feedback on a draft Concept Master Plan for its freehold landholdings in Anglesea.

    The draft plan also incorporates potential changes to the existing land tenure arrangements, consistent with the Anglesea Futures Draft Land Use Plan, to enable the proposed land use directions.

    The draft plan also incorporates potential changes to the existing land tenure arrangements consistent with the Anglesea Futures Draft Land Use Plan, to facilitate the realisation of the proposed land use directions.

    The integrated plan recognises the role Alcoa’s land could play in:

    • connecting people to Anglesea’s valued landscapes;
    • creating a new tourism destination for Anglesea and the Great Ocean Road; and
    • creating economic opportunities for Anglesea and the wider region.

    The draft plan proposes a potential major eco-tourism facility, accommodation and community facilities, through to the conservation and enhancement of high value native flora, and the ability to facilitate the delivery of sustainable residential housing and tourism accommodation.

    Alcoa Site Asset Manager Warren Sharp said more than two years of community and stakeholder consultation had preceded the release of the plan.

    “The draft Concept Master Plan is informed by a range of inputs including broad community consultation, consideration of the site’s natural attributes and histories, future economic opportunities for Anglesea and the wider region, and key planning documents including the Anglesea Futures Draft Land Use Plan and the Anglesea Structure Plan.

    “The draft plan provides an approach that is sensitive to the future environmental and economic needs of Anglesea through providing opportunities for people to be connected to the valued environmental assets on our doorstep.”

    Mr Sharp said when considered alongside the aspirations in the Anglesea Futures Draft Land Use Plan released recently by the Victorian Government Department Environment Land Water Planning, Alcoa’s landholdings had the opportunity to deliver widespread benefits for the Anglesea community and the wider region.

    Community feedback on the draft plan to inform Alcoa’s submission to the Anglesea Futures land planning process, is welcome.
