Community engagement

Community input and feedback will continue to play an important role in assessing a site.

The facility will not be built in a location if the nearby community does not want it.

Project team talks to community

The community will be involved in discussions about:

  • The environment
  • Transport
  • The location of the facility within the nominated property
  • The facility's layout and look
  • Infrastructure upgrades in the surrounding area
  • The economic benefits for the local community and businesses.



Community Consultations

The department has held numerous community consultations and attended local events. The team is available to discuss the project and provide information and assistance regarding the project and the Community Benefit Programme on request. The department has locally-based Community Liaison Officers in both Hawker and Kimba, to assist with engagement. Please check out our website and Facebook page for updates on upcoming meetings and events.

Office hours are generally 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, however as staff members regularly travel throughout the region, it’s highly recommended you contact us by phone or email to book an appointment.
