Community involvement in projects is important to achieve project outcomes with short and long-term benefits. Effective consultation allows the community to engage in the decision-making process, taking into account local interests and concerns, and provides the land manager and designer with specific local knowledge and landscape values and this is essential to achieve an appropriate outcome. The long-term benefit of public involvement is a high level of acceptance, adoption and successful implementation of a project.
Ecoscape encourages and promotes community participation through:
- consultative committees
- hard copy and online surveys
- displays and information days
- workshops and groups discussions
- public meetings.
Ecoscape ensures effective community and stakeholder consultation through facilitating participation which is timely, interactive and deliberative. We encourage participation which is open and fair to ensure that a positive outcome is achieved for as many stakeholders as possible.
