Community Position Statement
Leigh Creek Energy is committed to involving stakeholders of the Project in a honest and open two-way communication. This proactive approach will enable Leigh Creek Energy to draw on local knowledge held by the Project’s stakeholders to identify and address issues of concern or importance, and to optimise the benefits of the Project to the local and regional communities.
Community engagement is ongoing and occurs throughout the life of the Project. Leigh Creek Energy’s engagement approach requires continual review to reflect changing community needs and aspirations, government requirements and to meet Company objectives.
Community Feedback Portal
LCK has introduced a targeted online Community Portal via the LCK website for interested stakeholders. Community members can easily login and share their experiences of the project, leave feedback, and locate or request information. The portal offers enhanced two-way communication where community users can track the progress of any requests they make and add reminders so that their questions are answered in a timely manner.
The site has been designed for ease of use and will be monitored by a dedicated Stakeholder Relations Coordinator. The Community Portal can be accessed at http://lcke.c3register.com/.
A suite of educational materials about the company and the project are being developed and more will be developed as questions are asked through the Community Portal and ongoing community meetings.
