Our Consultation Commitment
Open and transparent engagement and benefit-sharing with the local community are critical to a successful project. The team has been actively engaging with landholders, neighbours, the Walcha community, local businesses and government at all levels since mid-2019
We want to be part of the Walcha community for the next generation and are committed to working hard to build strong long-term relationships with local residents, businesses and organisations.
Our Community Engagement Strategy
Our community engagement strategy is built on the following core principles:
Community Consultative Committee
We established a Community Consultative Committee (CCC) for the project in accordance with the assessment requirements set out by the Department of Planning and Environment. The CCC consists of an independent Chair, community members, local government representatives, and project team members.
CCC meetings were held approximately quarterly while the Environmental Impact Statement was being prepared. The CCC performed an advisory and consultative role, providing a forum for open discussion on issues directly related to the project.
Meeting minutes are published on the website here .
