Community engagement ensures effective planning and decision making. It provides important information on Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) projects and identifies issues that need to be considered.
In undertaking community and stakeholder engagement activities, RMS goals are to:
- Enhance its transparency and public accountability.
- Ensure that its decision-making is inclusive of diverse community ideas and opinions.
- Ensure that its strategic planning, project development, and service delivery meets the balance of community needs and expectations.
- Create a more efficient RMS based on collaborative decision-making and enhanced public trust.
There are community discussions taking place on projects every day across NSW.
RMS engages the community through activities such as public meetings and workshops, online forums and community discussion groups, media announcements, letterbox drops and newsletters, site open days, advisory committees, surveys and questionnaires and this website.
RMS is currently reviewing the policies, processes and guidelines which support effective communication and engagement with our many stakeholders.
