The Moorabool and Central Highlands Power Alliance is holding a series of online meetings to introduce themselves to the community, as an electrical transmission line with pylons up to 80m high is planned for Moorabool.

The newly-formed committee will hold the first Zoom session from 7pm on Thursday (July 9).

People will need to register on to receive their Zoom link.

Alliance President Emma Muir said everyone would have the chance to ask questions on the night.

“We can only have limited numbers of people in this format, so there will be other sessions in the near future,” she said.

“We want to keep it under 45 minutes and simply let locals know who we are, who can be included, what is involved in the transmission network project, where it’s at – and where we see it’s at.

“We’ll also talk about our responses, where to from here and fundraising.”

A second Zoom meeting is planed for Sunday (July 12) from 7pm.

“Please register for one meeting or the other. We’re inclusive. We don’t want people to miss out. We will hold as many of these sessions as it takes.”
