Community and Business Reference Group meet for the eighth time

The Onshore Shale Gas Community and Business Reference Group (Reference Group) held its eighth and final meeting in Darwin and via videoconference on 8 December 2020.

Established to provide a forum for government to seek advice and share information, the Reference Group received updates on:

  • HFI implementation six month progress update: for the period of 1 May to 31 October 2020
  • CBRG term conclusion and ongoing oversight.

The Reference Group discussed the progress update with Northern Territory Government senior officers and Dr David Ritchie in attendance.

The Reference Group supported the view that the CBRG term would conclude on 31 December 2020 without seeking further extension. Engagement and oversight through final stage of inquiry implementation would continue directly with the Independent Overseer, Dr Ritchie and through existing and newly established working and reference groups.
