Change to final hearings in response to COVID-19

Responding to public health concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the Paradise Dam Commission of Inquiry will hold its hearings on 6-7 April in Brisbane instead of Bundaberg. 

Chairperson and Commissioner, John Byrne, said it’s regrettable that the Commission won’t be in Bundaberg when the parties make their final submissions. But it’s important that we conform with social distancing and other precautions to help curtail the spread of COVID-19. 

“The people in the Wide Bay and Burnett region and others following the work of the Inquiry can still access the April hearings through live-streaming,” he said. 

Anyone wishing to make a written submission to the Commission can do so by 31 March 2020. 

More information about the Inquiry is available on the Commission’s website.
