Stakeholder Advisory Group
A Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG) was established to provide advice and feedback to the Project Team at key points in the development of the Long Term Waste Management Strategy. Meetings were typically held on a monthly basis and were chaired by an independent facilitator. The SAG met 17 times between 2014-2016, and provided valuable feedback to inform the final Waste Strategy and public consultation process.
