Local area engagement plans

Our Community Engagement Strategy outlines all the ways that we’ll engage with people and communities that are affected along the route. We’ve written local area engagement plans to explain how we’ll deliver our strategy in each area. They set out how we‘ll engage with communities across Phase One to ensure that we meet our commitments and continue to be a good neighbour. This is particularly important in 2019 as we begin our main construction work.

Each plan:

  • introduces you to your local Community Engagement team and partners working on our behalf;
  • provides maps showing where our key works are in your area;
  • informs you about the different ways you can contact us; and
  • explains how we’ll measure how well we’re doing against our 10 Community Commitments.

Plans are currently available for the following areas:
