Upcoming events: Managing Coronavirus impacts

As the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to evolve, we are following advice from public health authorities to ensure the safety of our people and the communities in which we live and work. As a precautionary measure, we are postponing some community meetings, including upcoming Community Consultative Committee meetings, where we feel it’s appropriate. We continue to actively engage with our communities, via our website, social media, email and telephone.

Get in touch with our team by calling 1800 732 761 or emailing us at:

We will continue to update community members on when full community engagement activities will return to normal, subject to the latest public health information. Where possible, our project teams will also continue to support local businesses at this time.
