Welcome to the seventh edition of our monthly newsletter.

It is with great enthusiasm, I can share the design and construct tender documents for the pipeline have been released and the design and construct tender documents for the Dam will be released on Tuesday 18 May. These are significant milestones for the Project, and a culmination of decades of work by the dedicated community. We recognise the many individuals who have contributed and the Stanthorpe & Granite Belt Chamber of Commerce for championing the Project. We encourage lead contractors to register their interest in the tender process via the email, tenders@granitebeltirrigationproject.com.au.

Local suppliers interested in offering their services to tenderers can do so by registering via our contract/supplier interest form available here.

Over the past month, we have continued our engagement with the community through a range of briefings. Any residents and business owners in the Southern Downs interested in learning more about the Project are welcome to engage with us via the website or directly with us by visiting the Project office at 3/35 Maryland Street, Stanthorpe. Our opening hours are from 10am to 2pm, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You can also contact us by phone on 1300 313 377 or send an email to info@granitebeltirrigationproject.com.au.

It has been wonderful to see the dramatic change in the seasonal conditions since our last newsletter. Every time I visit Stanthorpe and the Granite Belt, I notice how vibrant this wonderful community is and how it has courageously dealt with the many challenges it has faced over the last few years.
