Territory benefit planning

Developing and implementing a Territory benefit plan will assist a project to earn and maintain their social licence in the local community.

Read the Territory benefit policy.

Key elements of a Territory benefit plan

A proponent’s Territory benefit plan should address all phases of their project and outline their:

  • project overview
  • Territory benefit commitments and strategies
  • communications and reporting strategy.

When developing a Territory benefit plan, project proponents are encouraged to consider what they can do to achieve a wide range of benefits including:

  • workforce development
  • employment
  • Aboriginal employment
  • diverse workforce
  • local suppliers of goods and services
  • Aboriginal suppliers of goods and services
  • local investment in and contribution to the shared value in the local community.

Project proponents are required to publicly share their plan’s key commitments and report on outcomes achieved. Proponents can determine the reporting communication approach that best suits their project’s stakeholders. This communication and reporting strategy will need to be outlined in the Territory benefit plan.

More information is available at attachment A and the appendix of the policy.
