Your consultative committee

Two Community Consultative Committees (CCCs) have been established for local communities in the Gowrie to Helidon area.

These 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.
