Archaeological Management Plans (AMPs) identify areas of European occupation where high concentrations of potential archaeological remains are expected to be present. In New South Wales archaeological sites are protected under the Heritage Act, 1977. The Act requires that historical archaeological sites and ‘relics’ are managed in accordance with permits issued by the Heritage Council of NSW. The consent of the Heritage Council is required before any archaeological 'relics' are disturbed. This is particularly relevant in the event of site redevelopment or rehabilitation.
