Chamber of Minerals and Energy – Have Your Say

Introducing Local Voices

The Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia (CME) has partnered with the nation’s science agency, CSIRO, to conduct an analysis of community attitudes towards mining in the South West region of Western Australia. This gives communities an opportunity to express their views and experiences about mining activity that occurs alongside them, helping to inform industry and how they address community issues.

Being heard is a powerful thing

The project is called Local Voices, and it will help CME to engage on the issues that matter most to the community. Local Voices will help inform the industry and how they address community issues.

Participating in the process provide an opportunity to express your views and experiences about mining activity that occurs in the South West region of Western Australia. We value your time and will make a cash donation to local not‐for‐profit groups for each survey completed

We are working hard to ensure that everyone in the South West region can participate in our confidential survey process.

Local voices matter

How you will be engaged

You can help inform industry decision‐making and make sure that issues that are important to your community are heard. The ‘Anchor’ survey is detailed and completed at the beginning of the process. It asks questions about a range of issues related to community life, your relationship with the mining industry, and the positive and negative aspects of living in your region.

Rewards for participation

Local Voices is committed to provide a tangible community outcome for your participation. For every survey completed, community members can assign credits to not‐for‐profit groups that will accrue with every survey completed. These may be cashed in for a donation by these groups.
