With a close eye being kept on the local Covid situation, the Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue is continuing to plan its Community Forum.

Although scheduled for Tuesday, March 29 at the Muswellbrook RSL Club, the Dialogue’s organising committee is investigating potential alternative dates for the forum due to the ongoing Covid impacts.

The forum will bring together a collaboration of representatives of the mining industry, government and the Upper Hunter community.

The Dialogue stresses the forum will only proceed if it is safe to do so and it will only be held with the support of Dialogue partners.

Consultation with the Dialogue’s partners is being conducted as part of the planning process. If the Covid risk and restrictions hamper a successful staging of the forum, the event will be moved to later in the year. Covid has already delayed the staging of the forum in both 2020 and 2021.

Planning for the event is based on Covid restrictions on gatherings remaining at current levels. The Dialogue will develop Covid-Safe plans coupled with the venue’s Covid rules to suit restrictions in place in March.

The forum is a very important event in the Dialogue calendar, it allows the Dialogue’s partners – from mining, government and community – to network and identify any issues that need to be addressed collaboratively. Latest details of Dialogue projects and other activities will be updated at the forum.

The Dialogue is liaising closely with all of its partners in the lead up to the proposed forum.

People interested in attending the 2022 Community Forum are asked to register their interest as soon as possible vie email to
