Attending a community information session

Council officers and MAB Corporation (the landowner) held community information sessions in the second week of the exhibition period. The purpose of the sessions was for information giving and Council officers, MAB and specialist consultants were available to answer any questions about the amendment. Council officers listened to thoughts on the amendment at the sessions, as it was not the purpose of the meeting to gather feedback on the amendment, as all feedback had to be made in writing.

To ensure people could ask the questions they want and for community safety and to comply with COVIDSafe settings, information sessions were held in small groups where social distancing was maintained. Registration to attend a session was essential.
