Regional Infrastructure Prioritisation (PIL) Method & Systems for the Hunter Objectives – Workshop

August 5, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm AEST



The goal of this workshop is to gain important feedback from council officers on the draft criteria, method and system for infrastructure prioritisation across our region. The consultant, Marsden Jacob Associates have a prepared a draft of the proposed method for prioritisation which we are seeking your feedback on. Some focus materials will be provided closer to the event – please read these in preparation. State government representatives are also invited to attend because, as you no doubt know, PIL requests often come from state agencies. Mentimeter (M) interactive (real time software to collect and present your views to the group in an anonymous fashion) will be used– a link will be provided closer to the date.
