DO you want to help make the Upper Hunter a better place to live?
The Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue (UHMD) is looking for residents who are interested in helping the UHMD address the cumulative impacts of mining through industry and community working together.
The dialogue’s chairman Dave O’Brien said there were a number of community representative positions available on the UHMD’s Joint Working Groups.
The working groups meet quarterly and play an important role by helping the UHMD choose and implement its strategies and activities, including projects aimed at addressing mining impacts in areas such as air and water quality, land management and rehabilitation and planning the Hunter of the future.
“The dialogue has had major successes over the past few years and it is vital that it stays relevant and focussed on the issues prioritised by the community and industry,” Mr O’Brien said.
“It is very important the voice of the community is fully represented on the dialogue.
“So, we are inviting residents for expressions of interest in joining our working groups.”
Mr O’Brien said community members could express their interest in joining the UHMD at firstname.lastname@example.org
