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.
