The purpose of the Community Reference Group (CRG) is to provide community members and stakeholders affected by construction activities in Reservoir with information about the project.
The CRG will assist the project team by:
- Sharing project updates, milestones and information with key community, trader and stakeholder representatives and utilising their established networks to disseminate the information
- Gaining a local perspective on project benefits and challenges, particularly in relation to minimising construction impacts and disruptions.
- Hearing feedback from the community to ensure clear and effective communications that address community questions and concerns in a timely manner.
