Russel Northe MLA:
Latrobe Valley Yacht Club

Hazelwood Power Station closure.

By Portal Admin - 30th August 2019 - Back to News

Member for Morwell Russell Northe has expressed his disgust at the lack of care and support that has been provided to stakeholders of Hazelwood Pondage including the Latrobe Valley Yacht Club.

Mr Northe said it was disgraceful what members of the Latrobe Valley Yacht Club have had to endure over recent months including ongoing uncertainty along with contending with damage and theft to their building and equipment.

To think that the State Government allowed Hazelwood Power Station to close without a fight and now apparently are also allowing the Pondage to close permanently without intervening at all just beggars belief.

The Minister responsible and the Andrews Government more broadly need to view the Yacht Clubs recent Facebook post so they can understand the real pain and hurt many people are going through due to the impact of the Pondage’s closure.

The Government should come to its senses and finally commit to a feasibility study and explore all options in reopening the Pondage for current and future generations to enjoy
