We are committed to engaging with local communities and providing opportunities for community members to find out more about project activities in their area, or to ask any questions.
We recognise there is more than one way to connect with community members, and provide a range of opportunities for engagement.
We regularly hold community information sessions in our project regions. These sessions, whether in the local town hall or at a community barbeque, are an opportunity for us to listen to any concerns or issues the community may have, and to update communities on project activities. Community information sessions are advertised in the local press . To find out more about upcoming sessions in your area please call our free community information line 1800 761 113 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
If you have any questions or concerns about the project we encourage you to call us on our free call community information line 1800 761 113, which is staffed during business hours. All enquiries are registered and responded to within 48 hours. Alternatively, email us at email@example.com

Our team of landholder advisers provide a familiar face during land access negotiations. They have excellent knowledge of the land and rural lifestyle and are available at any time upon request.
We have also set up a number of neighbourhood-based groups, so that landholders can meet in an informal environment to talk about our activities.
We have joined other companies in the industry to form regional community consultative committees as a way to better engage with communities. Each group meets at least quarterly and comprises an independent chair and representatives from the local council, state government agencies, Chamber of Commerce, various peak bodies and special interest groups. For JMRCCC information, please visit the Council website (http://www.maranoa.qld.gov.au/jmrccc).
We regularly engage with industry colleagues, government, special interest groups and local communities to discuss issues of community significance. In line with this, we have established issue-specific working groups to collaboratively develop strategies and solutions to address key project impacts. These groups include:
