East West Link independent assessment committee announced

Planning Minister, Matthew Guy, has announced an independent assessment committee to provide recommendations for the East West Link's first stage.

Created to provide advice and recommendations on the impact assessment of Stage 1, Guy said that public submissions received during exhibition would be reviewed by the committee.

Formal public hearings will be conducted in early-2014.

"I am pleased to appoint the independent assessment committee members who bring an enormous amount of experience in transport and town planning, engineering, environmental science and urban design across a wide range of major projects," said Guy.

Detailed terms of reference regarding how the committee will consider traffic issues, urban design and environmental management have been approced by Guy.

"The composition of the committee is drawn from Planning Panels Victoria so members have firsthand experience of being involved in significant Panels and Advisory Committees and dealing with the assessment of major and complex projects."

The Comprehensive Impact Statement will be exhibited on 31 October 2013.
