The proposed North West Transmission Developments (NWTD) will include 240 kilometres of new and upgraded overhead transmission lines that will link Cressy, Burnie, Sheffield, Staverton, Hampshire, and East Cam. The NWTD will strengthen the transmission network in North West Tasmania and build capacity that will ultimately help provide affordable, reliable, and clean energy for Tasmania and Australia into the future.
RPS was engaged by TasNetworks to design and deliver a communications and engagement approach to support the project’s design and approvals phase. Our evidence-based communications approach included the development of a narrative framework and visual assets to educate the community about the need for the project and combat misinformation.
Our team also led the design of a fit-for-purpose engagement approach to support the approvals process and develop a Community Benefits Sharing Program (CBSP). We used a co-design process to develop the CBSP, which included the facilitation of a youth panel, focus groups and information sessions.
In March 2023, the CBSP was approved by the TasNetworks Board who accepted all recommendations from the participants.
In summary, RPS provided the following:
Communications and engagement strategy, including narrative framework
Community and stakeholder engagement delivery
Design and facilitation of a youth panel to support the development of a Community Benefits Sharing Program
Facilitation of face-to-face and digital engagement
Risk and issues management
