Community group meetings

The Commissioner is keen to keep the community informed about the work being done and values your views on mine rehabilitation planning: What does it mean for you, for the region? What do you aspire this to look like during this transition?

Over the coming months, the Commissioner will meet with members of local community groups to talk about mine rehabilitation in the Latrobe Valley.

If you’re a member of a community group and would like the Commissioner to attend a group meeting, please contact us on 1800 571 966 or email
