Community Consultation

Newcastle City Council is committed to keeping the community informed as the investigation progresses. Council will use a range of communication channels to provide updates on the investigation, including direct engagement, emails, information updates, flyers and further community information sessions.

Council will update the community when the Detailed Site Investigation Report is finalised in late-2017. Council will continue engaging residents within the Investigation Area directly about the investigation outcomes and next steps.
