Community Liaison Group

The Community Liaison Group (CLG) was formed to provide two-way information sharing about the project between the consent holder and the community. It meets regularly and agendas and minutes for previous meetings are at the bottom of this page.

The next Community Liaison Group meeting has been set for Tuesday 14 February. Please email to register your interest in attending.

CLG background

The CLG is a forward-looking group that seeks the best outcomes for the project and the community by ensuring the free-flow of information, transparency and practical advice to the project.

The CLG supports the project by:

  1. Helping to ensure that the community is well-informed with accurate and timely information about the project, including progress, monitoring results and any issues.
  2. Providing community feedback to the project team so the project can respond to any concerns. This will be done by establishing a database and managing the information and actions required of the project team members, and through the approval and auditing of the communications plan.
  3. Appointing a member of the CLG to the selection panel for the independent monitor. 
  4. Appointing a member of the CLG to the project steering group. 

The CLG was formed through a process of invitation to submitters and stakeholders identified in the consent conditions. Attendees were invited from the area around Containment Site 1 (CS1), CS2 and CS3, the Department of Conservation, Toi Te Ora Public Health, WDC, Whakatāne Harbour Care Group, Fish and Game, NZTA, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Awa, SWAP, Federated Farmers, Whakatane Waimana Rivers Scheme Liaison Group, Hokowhitu Marae and Andrew Kohlrush, the Independent Monitor.

All meetings are open to the public. Please speak to the Chair if you would like to address the meeting in the public section so that time can be set aside in the agenda.
