Community Board and Forums
In 2018 an independent organisation, engaged by BHP, worked with the Community Board to help create a Community Development Plan. Intensive community consultation was undertaken and included individual discussions with local residents, community focus groups and a community wide survey. The consultation helped identify community development priority areas. The Community Board was presented with a draft plan and sought additional feedback from its various subcommittees (Forums). This latter work broadened the scope of the plan.
The Community Board and Forums will drive and support the implementation of the Plan with the assistance of key community stakeholders.
The Plan will be reviewed annually to monitor and evaluate progress.
