Following face-to-face consultation sessions with the community last week, Reflections is now commencing the review of the comprehensive feedback received and continue to work on addressing community concerns.
Reflections Holiday Parks held 11 face-to-face consultation sessions and met with more than 100 members of the community in Shellharbour last week to gather feedback on the proposed Killalea Reserve Enhancement Project. Reflections Chair Wendy Machin and Members of the Board also visited the Reserve to support the consultation process and gain a greater appreciation of the uniqueness of the Reserve and understanding of feedback received.
Acting CEO Cameron Tynan said conversations last week were informative and constructive, with the team building a greater understanding of concerns that the local community have regarding the project and what their aspirations are for the future of Killalea.
“We thank everyone who took the time to meet with us and share their feedback and unique perspectives of Killalea last week,” Mr. Tynan said.
“We understand that people may have been disappointed that they did not get to meet the team at the Reserve on Saturday while the community protest was taking place. We watched the live feed on Facebook, and the passion and key sentiments surrounding the project echoed what we heard in our consultation sessions during the week.”
Next steps for Reflections includes:
– Collating feedback gathered during zoom consultation meetings and face-to-face sessions and coming back to the community with reviewed options.
– Consulting with Crown Lands and the Grant Provider to incorporate community feedback into the project scope where possible.
Mr. Tynan said community consultation was a fundamental part of this project, with more opportunities to meet with the team to be scheduled in the coming months.
“Our role is to make the Reserve as sustainable as possible for future generations to enjoy and our goal is to make Killalea something that we and the community are proud of,” Mr. Tynan said.
