Public and Stakeholder Engagement


The Project will include opportunities to participate in public engagement, as well as project information and updates on progress including through this website and events.

The public are encouraged to participate in Public Engagement days/events which will be held at various stages throughout the project. These events are in addition to the Public Exhibition of the Scheme.

Please note: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions, measures are currently being assessed as to the options for Public Engagement Events, with the possibility of these events being held virtually (online) to counter the effect of travel restrictions and limits on group numbers. Please review this page regularly for updates.
