 Residents that will be affected by APA’s proposed gas pipeline from Pakenham to Crib point are being invited to an information session.

A number of landowners including those in Devon Meadows have been unhappy with a proposal from energy heavyweight APA to build a 60 kilometre pipeline that will cut through their properties.

Aiken Partners Lawyers in Melbourne will discuss potential acquisition and compensation at an information session to be held at Pearcedale Community Centre (710 Baxter-Tooradin Road, Pearcedale) on Tuesday 14 August at 6pm.

Principal lawyer Peta Olive said Aiken Partners was taking the opportunity to invite owners and occupiers of land affected by the current gas pipeline route to a free information evening to advise them of their rights regarding APA Group’s proposal.

“Our aim is to make anyone who is going to be impacted by the pipeline whether it is an owner of the land where the pipeline is proposed or an occupier of the land – to get them to understand what their rights are in a compulsory acquisition scenario.”

“We recommend they attempt to negotiate if this did go ahead. It’s all about arming people with information so that they are informed about what their rights are and what they’re entitled to.”

Light refreshments will be provided on the night.
