Aboriginal cultural heritage reform

In September 2013, the Government released a model for stand-alone Aboriginal cultural heritage legislation. The proposed model was developed in response to the recommendations provided by an independent ACH Reform Working Party, public feedback and consideration of current practice in other State and Territory jurisdictions.

When released, the Government asked the public to provide feedback on the proposed model. This third public consultation phase was open for six months, included 19 public workshops and provided a range of media through which people had the opportunity to have a say about the future management of Aboriginal cultural heritage in NSW.
