Kalbar has prepared a Consultation Plan for the Environment Effects Statement in accordance with State Government guidelines. The Plan sets out the approach, methods and activities to be undertaken by Kalbar to meet our consultation responsibilities.
The objectives of the plan are:
- To deliver effective stakeholder engagement and consultation through the EES process for the project.
- To ensure affected stakeholders and interested parties are informed, consulted and involved in the EES process and their values, priorities and issues are acknowledged and addressed.
- To encourage participation and input in the EES process, so that local knowledge, priorities and expertise can contribute to the process and outcome.
- To provide timely, consistent, and open engagement with stakeholders throughout the EES process.
We welcome any comments or suggestions on our Consultation Plan, however any proposed changes to the Plan will be subject to the approval of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).
The plan was updated in December 2018, April 2019 and July 2019.
