Community Engagement

A Community Information Session was held at Kersbrook Public Hall on Monday, 14 December 2020.

COVID-19 Response

The Department will continue to tailor community engagement opportunities in line with the latest COVID-19 advice from health authorities.

Face-to-face engagement opportunities may be restricted and we will continue to be guided by the advice of authorities, with the health and safety of our stakeholders always our highest priority.

Engagement with community and industry is crucial and we will facilitate information sessions where possible to enable face to face engagement.  It is important to assist in managing these events and enabling physical distancing, that you register as requested so attendance numbers can be monitored.
