Alcoa wants to hear your views on the Anglesea Power Station and Mine

After 46 years of operation, Alcoa’s Anglesea Power Station and Coal Mine was permanently shut down in August 2015. The planning for the remediation and closure of the mine site, and the decommissioning and remediation of the power station, is progressing.

Alcoa understands the community’s interest in the Alcoa site, and has continued to actively engage with the Anglesea community and key stakeholders about the future of the leasehold and freehold areas.

Alcoa is undertaking a four-phase community engagement program inclusive of a range of activities and communication, in addition to the ongoing Alcoa Community Consultation Network.

It is expected that Alcoa will release the a draft Master Plan for its freehold land late in 2017, for community consultation. In line with previous phases of engagement, a range of activities will be scheduled to ensure the community and key stakeholders can review the draft plan and have the opportunity to provide further feedback and input.

  • Hi there, We are locals and I'm hoping the plans for the closed mine will include opening some rock climbing walls! Looking around the web to see if this is in the plans, but couldn't find any info on this, are climbing walls part of the plan? Thanks, Lara

    Hi Lara,

    Thank you for your interest in the future of the Anglesea mine and power station site.

    Alcoa is currently undertaking technical studies to inform the development of the draft Revised Mine Closure Plan and the draft Master Plan for Alcoa freehold land.

    The future use of the land will be guided by the results of these technical studies as well as taking into consideration the guiding principles developed in conjunction with the community in 2016, and the many ideas generated.

    It is expected that Alcoa will be seeking community feedback on the draft Revised Mine Closure Plan in April 2017, and on the draft Master Plan for Alcoa freehold land in late 2017.  

    If you haven’t already, please register here so we can keep you updated.  We also hold bi-monthly meetings in the community (Community Consultation Network) where we discuss the progress of our activities and you are most welcome to come along.

    Kind regards,

    The Alcoa Team
