Call for nominations – Moorebank Logistics Park Community Consultative Committee

Nominations are open for the appointment of community members to the Moorebank Logistics Park Community Consultative Committee.

Many State Significant projects in NSW have Community Consultative Committees.

These committees provide a forum for dialogue between the proponent and representatives of the local community, stakeholder groups and local councils on issues directly relating to the project.

About the project

The Moorebank Logistics Park is a vital piece of infrastructure for NSW which will transform the way containerised freight moves through Port Botany through the delivery of a fully automated port-to-site rail link. Once complete, the Moorebank facility will move 1.5 million shipping containers annually by rail instead of road and create significant benefit by:

  • Taking 2,700 heavy truck movements off Sydney’s roads each day
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 110,000 tonnes every year
  • Delivering $11 billion in economic benefits through improved productivity
  • Creating an expected 6,800 jobs

Community Consultative Committee membership

Established in 2019, the Moorebank Logistics Park Community Consultative Committee has an active membership of people who live locally or are members of a stakeholder group.

We are seeking to fill three membership positions on the committee.

NSW Department of Planning and Environment’s Community Consultative Committee guidelines (Section 3.4) require that community representatives must:

  • be current residents or landowners within the relevant local government area
  • demonstrate involvement in local community groups and/or activities
  • have knowledge and awareness of the project and related issues of concern to the local community
  • be able to represent and communicate the interests of the affected local community
  • be willing to adhere to the committee’s code of conduct.

In addition, representatives of stakeholder groups must:

  • be a member of a stakeholder group with an interest in the project – including an industry, community, environmental or Aboriginal group
  • have knowledge and awareness of the project and related issues of concern
  • be able to represent and communicate the interests of the group or community
  • be willing to adhere to the committee’s code of conduct.

The role of a committee member is voluntary.

Selection criteria

Committee members are expected to contribute constructively to committee discussions, attend around four meetings a year, and communicate information about the Moorebank Logistics Park between the committee and the broader community.
