York Civil’s approach to community consultation is to work collaboratively to ensure we limit the impact of our projects on the surrounding areas, community and stakeholders. Transparency, thorough planning and a ‘no surprises’ culture is the hallmark of our engagement with the community.

We use a number of initiatives tailored to the specific project to ensure transparency, including:

  • A 24-hour information line
  • Media bulletins
  • Open days and tours
  • Tree planting days
  • Information booths
  • The establishment of community reference groups
  • Dedicated project websites
  • Direct engagement with stakeholders for property access
  • Direct consultation with community organisations such as local indigenous groups, local councils, and environmental groups.
