Proposed Developments in Our Region

Latrobe City Council are seeing a number of proposed large scale development projects that are being met with both concern and positivity from members of our community as part of early consultation activities.

Projects such as the proposed Battery Recycling Plant in Hazelwood North, the proposed Frasers Solar Farm in Glengarry and proposed Delburn Wind Farm are just a sample of these projects that have raised the interest of community members.

Currently no formal application has been lodged for these developments and Council has not formed a position in relation to these projects.

The proponents for these developments have been strongly encouraged by Latrobe City Council to conduct pre-consultation with the community to feed into design considerations prior to formally applying for any necessary approvals.

View the projects below and contact the proponents for the projects for more detail/provide feedback on the projects:
