Alcoa wants to hear your views on the draft Concept Master Plan for its freehold land

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, produced for community feedback, proposes possible future land uses for four areas of freehold land Alcoa owns including at the former power station site, within the former mine, and adjacent to the Anglesea township.

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 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.

    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.
