The closure of the Hazelwood Power Station and Mine (Hazelwood) site presents an unprecedented redevelopment opportunity that has the potential to reinvigorate the Latrobe Valley and the wider Gippsland Region.
The Hazelwood Concept Master Plan has been developed to identify and present the potential opportunities and the future investment potential of the site that surrounds ENGIE’s intended final rehabilitated landform of a full 1,281 ha pit lake.
It presents a land-use based vision for the future of Hazelwood that looks at how the site could be used by the community, businesses, investors and developers, service providers and government.
The Concept Masterplan features three key zones for future development and activity:
- Tourism Belt close to Morwell and adjacent to the Lake to provide a centre for tourism, recreation and small-scale agriculture.
- Mine Lake will be the heart of Hazelwood.
- Productivity Hub centred around the key adjacent asset of the switchyard. The hub can be home to a range of uses which take from, and feed into the Victorian energy grid.
The Concept Masterplan is an evidence-based approach to the future of the site that responds to detailed site constraints and potential economic opportunities. For further information download the Concept Masterplan
