2018

We conducted an eight-week stakeholder consultation process, from 2 August - 26 September 2018, seeking feedback on the proposed development project.

A series of public workshops and forums were held across Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin and Townsville. A dedicated email address, webpage and social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn) also enabled stakeholders to provide written feedback.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have compiled a series of frequently asked questions relating to the Development Project. 

If you have additional questions, or wish to provide feedback on the project, please email development@awm.gov.au.

Resources

We are inviting the public to attend community drop-in sessions, to learn more about Our Continuing Story and hear about the future plans and vision of the development project. Our resource page is a guide for you to use to help promote these drop-in sessions and encourage attendance by local community members.
