The Collector Wind Farm Community Consultative Committee helps information about the project to flow both ways between Ratch and local residents. 

The committee meets quarterly, providing a forum for Ratch to give up-to-date project information, seek community feedback and better understand community concerns, as well as answer questions.

Membership comprises an independent chairperson, local community members, a representative from Upper Lachlan Shire Council, local residents and Ratch staff. This is consistent with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment guidelines.

The CCC has been particularly heavily involved in driving and negotiating the framework for the administration of the community funds that will flow from the wind farm project.

The CCC was formed in 2012. To coincide with the start of construction work, the membership of the CCC was refreshed, with members of the community invited to express an interest in taking part.

As of August 2019, the community representatives on the CCC are John Hoskins, Anthony Walsh, Brian Mor, Martha Truelove, James McKay, Ed Geishofer and Terry Lovelock. Mayor John Stafford represents Upper Lachlan Shire Council and Margaret Harvie was appointed by the NSW Government to chair the committee.

The CCC also has its own website.
