Kimba Consultative Committee

The formation of the Kimba Consultative Committee was announced December 2017.

Nominations opened in September 2017 and closed 20 October 2017.

The committee is made up of an independent convener, deputy convener, and 14 members including businesses and land owners, local representatives and individuals.

It will advise the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science on matters including:

  • funding projects proposed under the $2 million Community Benefit Programme
  • the design and operation if the facility goes ahead in a proposed location
  • how best to measure community support for the facility.

In line with the guidelines (DOC 196KB), the committee is not a decision-making body and performs an advisory role only between the community and the government. Community members who make up the committee will meet regularly throughout the process to discuss key aspects of the project.

The committee will remain an active group for the duration of the site selection process. It will be the Minister’s discretion if the committee remains in place after this decision. Consultative committees will be set up in communities where sites have progressed to the technical assessment stage.
