The Minister for Environment and Climate Change has recently granted the Victorian Environmental Assessment Council (VEAC) an extension of time for the Yellingbo Investigation. This will allow the VEAC members, with a majority of who only commenced on VEAC about two months ago, more time to give due consideration to the important issues and complexities that have emerged in the work done on the Investigation to date.
The Investigation is now due for completion by 31 July 2013 instead of 25 February 2013. As a result, the Draft Proposals Paper that was scheduled for publication in late August 2012 will be released in November or December 2012.
