Community Consultation

Jun 24, 2021 | News, Parliament

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (12:59): My constituency question today is for Minister Allan in the other place. We recently met with Banyule council, and they expressed to us their frustration with regard to the distinct lack of community consultation in planning projects, both by the government and by the main project bodies. We have had much correspondence with our own constituents on this issue. Just some of these projects include the North East Link, the Hurstbridge line duplication and the roundabout on Eltham Road. Communities are key stakeholders. They want to be involved in the projects, they do bring skills and they can contribute to better outcomes. So the information I seek is: what processes do the government have in place to engage in transparent, genuine and constructive community consultation?

Mrs McArthur: On a point of order, President, the minister interjected to say she would be pleased to provide an answer. We would provide leave for her to provide the answer now.

The PRESIDENT: That is not a point of order, Mrs McArthur.
