The Committee was formed by the Maribyrnong and Melbourne City Councils. It provides a framework for the community to monitor Coode Island and raise and address health, safety and environmental issues of concern.
At its meeting on 11 November 2014, the Committee adopted the "Guidelines for agency representatives presenting at CICCC", noting the support for the guidelines from the MFB, the City of Maribyrnong and from WorkSafe. The EPA has advised that it has no issues with the guidelines. The guidelines can be found here.
At the February 2014 meeting of the CICCC, Terminals Pty Ltd announced that it was initiating a community grants program associated with its Coode Island facility, similar to the program it has implemented at its Geelong facility at Corio. The assessment of applications for grants will be assessed against the criteria in the document Sponsorship of Community Projects. The CICCC warmly endorsed the initiative, and will be involved in providing advice to Terminals about the merit of applications that are made for funds by community groups.
The next meeting of the CICCC is on Tuesday 18 August 2015 at 3pm, at Terminals' site office on Mackenzie Road, Coode Island.
Future meetings are also proposed for 2015: 24 November (on site).
