The Isaac Regional Council plans to consult with the community about workers mine camps being built in the area.

Mayor Cedric Marshall said there will be a series of community meetings held next month in Moranbah to discuss the issues.

On the agenda will be decisions about the size of the camps in the Queensland town and the mayor said the feedback will be used when mining companies look to build camps in the town.

“We’re going to give people the option to have a look at what we’re coming up with, what the suggestions are and also if they have any suggestions and as soon as we get that feedback from that consultation period we’ll put that into our social management plans for any further EIS’s [environmental impact statements] from the various mining companies,” he said.
