The Lockyer Valley Community Consultative Committee was established in December 2017 and has 15 members, plus the independent Chair, who will provide input and feedback into the Gowrie to Helidon and Helidon to Calvert projects.

The two-year tenure of the Lockyer Valley CCC concluded in late 2019. The renewed Committee was appointed in March 2020 for up to two years, or until the Gowrie to Helidon and Helidon to Calvert projects have gained statutory approval.
