Community Consultative Committees provide a forum for discussion between a proponent and representatives of the community, stakeholder groups and the local council on issues directly relating to State significant projects.
They seek to ensure the community and stakeholder groups are kept informed of the status of projects, are engaged in the development and implementation of State significant projects, and are able to provide feedback to proponents on key issues and concerns.
