In June 2019 Jen was engaged by the Central Victorian Livestock Exchange to independently facilitate a community meeting. Participants (mainly neighbours) were concerned about the odour impacts of the new facility, which is located in Miners Rest.
After this meeting, Jen was asked to produce an Engagement Strategy to guide CVLX’s ongoing engagement with its neighbours and the broader community. A key element of the Engagement Strategy was the development of a Neighbour Reference Group (NRG) to work through ongoing impacts and issues. Unavailable for the first of the NRG meetings, Jen facilitated the second and third meetings in 2020.
