Role of the Committee

The Committee will provide community input on aspects of the studies required as part of the project approvals process, as well as providing ARTC Inland Rail insights into community issues, concerns and opportunities.

While the Committee is for consultation purposes and will not be a decision-making body, the input and feedback received will result in a project that better addresses community issues and concerns during planning and design.

The Committee Chair and Members will be bound by the Interim Charter, which sets out the scope of the Committee and expectations of behaviours. It is expected that the Committee will ratify the Interim Charter at their first meeting.

Criteria for selecting members

Thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination for membership of the Committee. We received 36 nominations, with all nominations assessed by an independent assessor.

The Member selection process sought to ensure Members had demonstrated local community connections and/or relevant knowledge. Nominees were assessed against the following criteria:

  • Community participation/connections
  • Community channels
  • Subject matter experience
  • Business experience
  • Board experience
  • Individual resides in or group is based within a suburb along the project alignment

A benchmark score of 8 out of 11 was established and must be attained in order for a Member to be appointed - a similar criterion applied across all Community Consultative Committees established for Inland Rail in Queensland and subsequently why Committees are of different sizes. Each Committee also has one representative for Indigenous peoples.

Towns covered

  • Acacia Ridge
  • Algester
  • Forestdale
  • Hillcrest
  • Boronia Heights
  • Flagstone
  • Kagaru

Note, this list is not exhaustive but gives an idea of the towns included.
