At the outset of this project, and at all times as we move forward, we will engage with local communities; keeping local people and key stakeholders informed of progress.

We will make ourselves available to answer any questions, take on board feedback and keep residents and communities up to date with our work. Local councils and elected representatives who have questions about the project can contact us and we will be happy to meet to present further detail about the project. We will have a dedicated Community Engagement Manager throughout the exploration process, who will be the first point of contact for anyone with queries.

We are also committed to working with the Department for the Economy, the Department for Infrastructure and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, including the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, to ensure that all regulations, including those relating to the environment, health & safety, water and waste management, are fully complied with throughout.
