Community Consultation

Our Consultation Commitment

Engagement, transparency and benefit-sharing with the local community are critical to a successful project. Without a social licence to operate in the region, there can be no project.

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 residents, businesses and organisations.

Our Community Engagement Strategy

Our community engagement strategy is built on the following core principles:

We will keep community and stakeholders informed by providing timely and factual information throughout the project lifecycle.

We will identify and address community and stakeholder concerns honestly and transparently.

We will provide the means for stakeholders to communicate with us, including where to provide feedback, how to register a request to be involved in the project or how to register a complaint.

We will seek to maximise the social and economic benefit to the local community.

Community Consultative Committee

We have established a Community Consultative Committee (CCC) for the project in accordance with the assessment requirements set out by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. The CCC consists of an independent Chair, community members, local government representatives, and project team members. The CCC performs an advisory and consultative role, providing a forum for open discussion on issues directly related to the project.

CCC meetings are held approximately quarterly while the Environmental Impact Statement is being prepared and the development application is being assessed. Meeting minutes are published on the website here as they become available.
