How can we engage the local community to maximise involvement. Can you provide some examples of what this is referring to? (local benefits)
Local benefits are outcomes related to the proposal that are expected to benefit the Local Area where they are delivered.
It’s the proponent’s responsibility to identify benefits related their proposal; an example might include (but are not limited to) using local suppliers and employing tradespeople whose place of business is located and workforce lives predominately in the Local Area, thereby supporting local businesses and jobs. Another benefit could be a commitment to employ a specific number of apprentices, providing opportunities for young people to pursue a trade.
Expressions of interest closed on Monday, 23 September 2019. We want to thank everyone who submitted a proposal.
