We are committed to working closely with landholders and local communities throughout the design, development and construction of Inland Rail.
Inland Rail Community Consultative Committees (CCCs) provide a forum to share project information, discuss topics of interest, and address any issues or community concerns.
Importantly, they also provide an opportunity for community representatives to share their knowledge and experience on key issues with the Inland Rail team.
The CCCs are made up of specially selected members with a range of backgrounds and interests. Each committee has an Independent Chair.
While the committees are not decision-making bodies, their input and feedback will result in projects that better address community issues and concerns during planning and design.
