Community Roundtable Notes

The Shire of Irwin Community Roundtable aims to provide a clear line of communication for upcoming Mitsui E&P Australia (MEPAU) projects (especially the Waitsia Project) in the Mid West between local community members, Traditional Owners, landowners, local business, government, regulators, local not-for profit groups and MEPAU.

The notes from past Irwin Community Roundtable workshops can be found on the Meet2Create website – run by Kris Barnes, the facilitator of the meetings.

Based on feedback from participants, the Community Roundtable workshops are now being held at key project and activity milestones. Most roundtable participants said they felt their key questions had been satisfactorily answered and preferred to meet less often.
