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 Launches Community Engagement for Anglesea Mine and Power Station

    Alcoa Media Release

    Tuesday 22 March 2016

    Alcoa of Australia has launched a community engagement process to help shape the future of the Anglesea mine and power station site.

    Alcoa’s Anglesea Asset Manager Warren Sharp said community engagement continues to be a priority for Alcoa and stakeholder input would help support the development of a Revised Mine Closure Plan, and a Draft Master Plan for the power station freehold land.

    Alcoa Media Release

    Tuesday 22 March 2016

    Alcoa of Australia has launched a community engagement process to help shape the future of the Anglesea mine and power station site.

    Alcoa’s Anglesea Asset Manager Warren Sharp said community engagement continues to be a priority for Alcoa and stakeholder input would help support the development of a Revised Mine Closure Plan, and a Draft Master Plan for the power station freehold land. Both plans will be considered during the strategic land use planning to be undertaken in 2017.

    “To kick start this process, in collaboration with the Alcoa Community Consultation Network (CCN), Anglesea Futures, the Victorian Government and Surf Coast Shire, we have developed draft guiding principles to share with the community for feedback,” Mr Sharp said.

    “These guiding principles will help inform the development of the Revised Mine Closure Plan and the power station Draft Master Plan, so it is important that the community provide Alcoa with their views.”

    Draft Guiding Principles

    Provide a safe and stable land form for future uses.

    Value and complement the natural environment.

    Support a diverse range of future uses and outcomes.

    Honour the various cultural and heritage values of the area.

    Complement the future of the Anglesea Region.

    “During April and May, Alcoa will engage with the community via workshops, an online website and listening posts. We encourage all members of the community to get involved and participate in these activities,” Mr Sharp said.

    This Sunday Alcoa team members will be at the Anglesea Market, providing the first opportunity for the community to be involved and share their views about the draft guiding principles and the Alcoa site.

    “Consistent with our values Alcoa will consult in a way that is inclusive, transparent and accountable, and will consider all feedback. We want to provide an opportunity for everyone to participate and will be responsive to stakeholder views, while seeking to balance community, Alcoa and government expectations about the future of the site,” Mr Sharp said.

    “Alcoa has a long history of community engagement, including a well-established CCN that was formed in 2001 and is open to any interested community member or stakeholder. We will continue to convene regular CCN meetings in addition to the process that we have launched today.”

    The Department of Land Environment Water and Planning (DELWP) will commence the strategic land use planning for the Anglesea power station and coal mine in 2017. A strategic land use study is required to determine the future use of the site, except for areas known to be added to the Great Otway National Park. Once completed any recommended changes to the zone of the land can be implemented through an amendment to the Surf Coast Planning Scheme.
