The Department of Defence (Defence) recognises the importance of providing local residents, statutory authorities and other interested stakeholders with an opportunity to provide input into, or raise concerns relating to SGS-E.
As part of Defence’s community consultation strategy, Federal and State Parliamentary members will be consulted on the proposed works as well as the local council, Chamber of Commerce or equivalent in the area and the community as applicable.
Operating under the provisions of the Public Works Act 1969, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works (PWC) holds enquiries into Commonwealth funded public works that the Australian Parliament refers to the PWC. The PWC's investigation and subsequent report provides the basis for Parliamentary approval for projects to proceed (that it is 'expedient to proceed').
More information on the PWC process can be found at:
Defence will hold a public information session to provide further information to the community regarding the proposed works for SGS-E.
The session will be an informal drop-in session which will be open to the public.
The time, date and location of the session is:
When:Tuesday, 11 July 2017
Time:4:00pm – 7:00pm
