Aboriginal cultural heritage in NSW information session - Griffith

Printer-friendly version
20 Oct 2017 - 9:00am
The NSW Government is reforming the way Aboriginal cultural heritage is conserved and managed in New
South Wales, and is seeking feedback on the proposed new system. This information session is being held to help the community learn about what is being proposed. It will be followed by a workshop about a month later, on 1 December, to discuss issues and provide feedback.
The reform process
The first step involves changing the law for conserving and managing Aboriginal cultural heritage. This will form the cornerstone of a new legal framework that will, over time, also include new regulations, policies and guidelines.
After several years of consultation, the NSW Government has developed a proposed new system for managing and conserving Aboriginal cultural heritage, which is now available for public review.
What the proposed new system aims to do
The proposed new system aims to fulfil the NSW Government’s commitment to deliver stand-alone legislation that respects and conserves Aboriginal cultural heritage for current and future generations. It also aims to recognise Aboriginal custodianship and ensure Aboriginal people have the authority to makes decisions about Aboriginal cultural heritage, while providing clear and consistent processes for economic and social development in New South Wales.
Registration for the information session
These sessions are free, and refreshments will be provided. See the attached flyer for more information.
To register, phone Jackie Puckeridge from MEC Consulting: 0481 959 813.
