Community Engagement

Community engagement for Stage 1 of the New Grafton Correctional Centre has been completed. Consultation for Stage 2 is currently being undertaken by Northern Pathways. More information on the stage one consultation activities can be found here.

Northern Pathways will continue to engage with the local community throughout all phases of the project. Community members will have a number of opportunities to be involved and provide meaningful feedback on different elements of the project as it progresses. We will ensure that the community is kept up to date on the progress of the project, and kept informed of any activities taking place in the area. We look forward to building productive partnerships with local industries, NGOs and service providers, and particularly the traditional land owners and local Aboriginal groups. This page will be regularly updated with information on upcoming community engagement events and opportunities to be involved with the project.
