Discussion topic will be Cultural Heritage in Victoria - 5 years in - What you need to know.
Since the introduction of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006, a further layer of complexity has been added to the development process - including exploration and the general mining and extractive industry. This talk will discuss the implications of the legislation, featuring key lessons, a greater understanding of the costs and potential outcomes. Oona will discuss the practical application of the Act, its VCAT interpretation and an overview of the current legislative review process. The Cultural Heritage Management Plan - What is Involved?
